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.
February 28, 2019 – Thursday
Gospel: Mark 9:41-50
“Anyone who gives you a cup of water to drink because you belong to Christ, amen, I say to you, will surely not lose his reward.”
Our objective in life is to live and do like Christ, and to go to Heaven. Thus He says when we sin due to our eyes, let’s pluck it out; etc. He uses strong words for us to realize the seriousness of sin.. Commonly these days, sin and conscience have lost their meaning. We are desensitized. We feel that even if we commit the same sin again and again without repenting, it’s alright with Him. Mama Mary help us not lose heaven.
