Dear Friend in the Lord,
“Protection from the Evil One”: In today’s Gospel, Jesus prays to His Father to “protect everyone from the Evil One.” Many of us believers continue to live in the “fear” of the Evil One. To have such “fears” is to weaken our faith and trust in Jesus, who is the Saviour and Lord of our lives. Pray for renewal of your faith, hope and love in Jesus.
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Jesus raised his eyes to heaven and said: ‘Holy Father, keep those you have given me true to your name, so that they may be one like us.
‘I am not asking you to remove them from the world, but to protect them from the Evil One. They do not belong to the world any more than I belong to the world. Consecrate them in the truth; your word is truth. As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world, and for their sake I consecrate myself so that they too may be consecrated in truth.’
