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.

Matthew 11: 16-19
We piped and you did not dance.
There is a time for everything - a time to dance, a time to weep, to mourn or to laugh. But that time would differ per person depending on their values and priorities. Two students learn that classes were cancelled. One rejoiced because he hadn’t studied. The other was disappointed because he was very ready for the exam. Today, Jesus asks us— will we be in tune and in time to the Kingdom and will we react to situations the way God would want us to?
Lord, intensify our hearts’ desire to prepare for your coming. Give us ears and hearts to discern your message today and everyday.
