Gospel: Matthew 14:1–12
Courage to Speak the Truth
Today’s Gospel narrates how John the Baptist was persecuted and executed by king Herod due to the latter’s act of proclaiming the truth.
During this critical time when people are being persecuted in speaking the truth, it is inevitable to feel disheartened in seeing the wicked stomp on the righteous. But God always stands with the righteous and He gives life to the truthful.
Let us always hold on to the faith that we have and never be discouraged in proclaiming the truth.
