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 11:25–27
Things revealed to the simple ones.
In today's Gospel, the scribes and pharisees claimed to have great knowledge of God – having the degrees and superior knowledge.
Jesus emphasizes the importance of humility – for a true believer acquires an intimate knowledge of God only through Jesus Christ. It is His great joy to see simple people humbly trusting and depending in God.
Mother Mary, teach us how to be simple and humble in knowing your son even more. Amen.
