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 30, 2019 Sunday
"When the days drew near, he set his face to go to Jerusalem."
How resolved are we to do the mission God has for each of us? If it means hardship and difficulty will we continue doing it?
As Jesus continued his mission throughout Gallilee, He could very well have stopped and stayed somewhere. He could have refused to continue on to Jerusalem knowing what awaited him there.
But the Gospel says that he “set his face”. The Greek translation literally means He was steadfast. He trusted that all was in Gods control and that all was according to God’s plan.
When we feel afraid to continue on, let us pray for the same determination as Jesus!
