Serving the Word: 14th July

FRIDAY, JULY 14th, 2023

Matthew 10:16-23:

“He who endures to the end will be saved.”


Jesus does not want us to be deceived.

He asks us to follow him.

But he clearly tells us that in this following, joy and happiness are mixed with the cross that we have to carry daily behind him.

Following Jesus and being close to him also implies sharing his suffering, being persecuted, experiencing misunderstanding and even giving our lives, as he did, to bring about the triumph of his kingdom of justice, love and peace.

We must be his witnesses even in the midst of difficulties.

We must proclaim the Gospel even in difficult times in which we cannot lose our smile and we must remain faithful to the last consequences.

During these summer days you will surely have many occasions to show your face for Jesus in environments, in circumstances, in situations, which are not exactly the most appropriate or the most consistent with the Gospel of Jesus.

May this word of Jesus always be fulfilled in you: “he who perseveres to the end will be saved”.

Good day.
