DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

Jesus as a Child: In today’s Gospel, Jesus taught in the synagogue with such great wisdom that those who knew Him were astonished.  God created the entire universe, and is Present in the mystery of the Perfection of everything that exists.  Yet, many choose not to believe in Him.  Pray for those who are “lost in the darkness” of sin and pride.

 Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Matthew 13:54-58

Coming to his home town, Jesus taught the people in their synagogue in such a way that they were astonished and said, ‘Where did the man get this wisdom and these miraculous powers? This is the carpenter’s son, surely? Is not his mother the woman called Mary, and his brothers James and Joseph and Simon and Jude? His sisters, too, are they not all here with us? So where did the man get it all?’

And they would not accept him. But Jesus said to them, ‘A prophet is despised only in his own country and in his own house,’ and he did not work many miracles there because of their lack of faith.
