I am with you always until the end of this world - Jesus (Matthew 28:20).

Preach the Word in season and out of season reproving, rebuking or advising always with patience and providing instructions (2 Timothy 4:2).

Do not fear, Mary, for God has looked kindly on you (Luke 1:30).

Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly. - G. K. Chesterton

My Gospel Reflections for May 13, Tuesday Mark 8:14-21

My Reflections:
Here in the Philippines almost 85% of the country’s population are catholics. Being many some Christian denominations would usually entice some catholics who are not deeply rooted in their faith to change religion and join theirs. The usual point of arguments that they normally use is that we catholics have images and we allegedly worship these images which are all falsehood.

In the gospel Jesus admonished his disciples to beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Herod. He used the leaven as a metaphor that they should not be convinced by the inducement of the Pharisees and Herod to leave him and join them instead.

The secular world has many inducements such as: money, greed, popularity, lust, ego, self-centeredness etc… We should be careful of these things, we should not let ourselves be deceived by these worldly inducement.

Let us be steadfast with our fellowship with Jesus through our words and actions.
