Read and be inspired by a reflection based on today's Gospel made by members of the Verbum Dei Family in Manila.

Gospel: Matthew 13:47–53
How righteous are we?
In today’s Gospel, Jesus told again a parable pertaining to separating the wicked and the righteous at the end of age – the Parable of the Net.
It’s always a mystery to think that Jesus was persecuted by people who consider themselves as good and righteous as they fulfill their religious obligations and on the other hand, was accepted by people who do the opposite. Such realization opens one’s heart in evaluating how one could be so foolish into thinking that he belongs to the good and would be saved when harvesting comes.
May we be conscious also in our deeds as we aim to be righteous in the eyes of God.
