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: John 16:29–33
“Take courage, I have conquered the world!” – John 16:33
In a world where one is being persecuted because of his own faith, courage is needed to live what you believe. The streetsmay have eyes as much as the walls have ears; others might be waiting for that moment of throwing criticisms to a faithful who stumbles in his way. But we should not lose our faithbecause we have our advocate – the Holy Spirit.
In today’s Gospel, Jesus inspired His disciples to take courage in living what they believe. Let us also take this as anencouragement for us to enduringly stand for the truth as wecourageously live what we believe.
