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: Mark 10:17-27
“And Jesus looking at him, loved him.”
In my childhood, I recall how often my parents would encourage me whenever I was disheartened. It wasn’t just because they wanted me to succeed, but because they believed and hoped in me. Today Jesus meets a rich young man who wanted very much to follow Him but was attached to his worldly life. Yet Jesus hoped in this young man despite knowing beforehand how we would respond. Jesus extends that same hope and confidence in each of us today. How will we respond?
Lord, thank You for never giving up in us. May Your faithfulness give us courage to respond with the same faith.
