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: Luke 14: 25 - 33
"Whoever does not carry his own cross and come after me cannot be my disciple." Luke 14: 27
In todays Gospel, Jesus is asking for a love that is exclusive and has God as our priority. No love should interfere with the love that we owe to Him. We must prefer Him above anything and anyone else in our lives.
We cannot love and follow Him without making Him our only priority, without accepting our cross and sufferings, and not willing to give up our worldly possessions, sacrificing our convenience by getting out of our comfort zone.
Jesus invites us today to carry our own cross and be His true disciples by making Him as our only priority.
Mother Mary help us to surrender everything and give us the strength as we carry our cross and follow Jesus. Amen
