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.
June 10, 2018 – Sunday
Today’s gospel mentions a lot about division--separated families, discrepancy of beliefs that cause conflict, broken relationships . . . Division is a reality that most of us have seen and perhaps experienced in our lives.
Today, we can examine ourselves: What is it that perhaps creates conflict within me and triggers division among the people around me? What shatters my life and my relationship with God? What separates me from others?
There are certain situations, attitudes, people in our lives by which we feel broken and through which we unconsciously cause division and conflict. Today, we can come to Jesus, our model of oneness and source of strength, and place in His hands ourselves and our situations that need wholeness and healing. There is nothing that he cannot be back in its right place and make whole again.
