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 26, 2018 – Sunday
Gospel: John 6:60-69
“Lord, to whom shall we go? You have words of Eternal Life.”
When we accept our path to holiness is through Jesus Christ, then we listen to His words and are sensitive to His every teaching. We seek to understand Him more, give Him our full trust, making Him live in our hearts forever.
We seek His teachings so as not to be led astray, we accept what He says freely with no conditions. We just follow and it liberates us. When the Holy Spirit has touched us, we know because of the peace that envelops us. We are freed from the guilt, the doubts, the fears, the helplessness and suffering. We know deep in our hearts when we are freed from these tensions. The peace and joy are immediately manifested in our smiles, and in our calm thoughts and actions. .
Let us imitate Mary who said “Behold, the Handmaid of the Lord, let it be done according to your Word.”
