Reflections of Faith
Read and be inspired by a reflection based on today's Gospel made by members of the Verbum Dei Family in Manila.
August 18, 2019 – Sunday
Gospel: Luke 12:49-53
“I have come to get the earth on fire.”
Fire here is a symbol of God’s love for us: He wants us to keep our love on fire too, for Him and the many others in this topsy-turvy world who may be needing our help and compassion.
We express our love by saying Yes through the little things we do each day: cleaning, cooking, serving others. That’s how we die for Him, and our flame is not diminished by each trial and difficulty. His love keeps us alive to continue on, and inspire others. It only takes a spark to start a forest fire. Let us be that spark!
