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.

Gospel: Matthew 10:34–11:1
"Take up your cross and follow me."
Jesus in today's Gospel challenges us to know who we love first and foremost. And a true disciple loves God above all else and is willing to forsake all for the sake of Jesus Christ.
He insists that we must take up our cross even if this means the possibility of our family and friends becoming our enemies, with the thought of them keeping us from doing what we know God wants us to do.
Mother Mary, teach us how to put God first in all that we do. Amen
