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.
July 30, 2019 – Tuesday
Gospel: Matthew 13:36–43
A call to vigilance and righteousness.
The sense of righteousness in our society at present is becoming critical. With the wicked trying to wittingly mislead righteousness out of things that are unjust, the innocent are being easily deceived into standing blindly to what is obviously wrong.
These wicked people are the weeds sown by the evil in the society. And like weeds sown among the good seeds they try to deceive the faithful by distorting the truth.
In today’s Gospel, Jesus is calling us to be vigilant with things that we believe in and take courage to stand to what is truly right.
