SCRIPTURE REFLECTION FOR THE DAY BY REV FR ERBIN FERNANDEZ:
God’s invitation is open to Jew and Gentile alike. But Jesus warns that we can be excluded if we do not strive to enter by the narrow door. What did Jesus mean by this expression?

Session 6 – Life is a Temporary Assignment In scriptures, life on earth is described as fleeting
“Our days on earth are as transient as a shadow.” King David prayed, “Lord, help me to realize how brief my time on earth will be. Help me to know that I am here for but a moment more.” Our identity is in eternity and our homeland is in heaven. Realising this truth will help us stop worrying about `having it all on earth`. How should the fact that life on earth is a temporary assignment change the way I am living right now?
Mass and homily by Fr. Erbin Fernandez

AWAKEN – A Young Adults Conversion Experience Retreat (Dec 15-18)
At the heart of it all, AWAKEN is about coming face-to-face with the love of God. And not just any love, but a love that is unconditional. Think about this for a minute. The unconditional love of God means He does not expect anything from you. He simply wants to love you for who you are. The good, the bad, pretty much all of you. In this 4-day stay-in camp, you will experience the reality of a God who wants to meet you right where you are. Through passionate praise and worship, life-giving talks, and reverent celebration of the sacraments, we will be here every step of the way to help you draw deeper into the depths of Christ’s love to experience His healing and forgiveness. If you are a Catholic young adult between 18 to 25 years, we want to invite you to AWAKEN. Take a step, come and give yourself a chance to personally and powerfully encounter the redeeming love of God. AWAKEN comes under the Amplify community which caters to young adults. For more details about registration, please refer to the Amplify website (www.amplifyministry.org/awaken) and AWAKEN Facebook page (www.facebook.com/AmplifyAwaken) Conducted by His Grace, Archbishop William Goh. Registration form can be found here and Consent forms here (below 21 years of age) and here (21 years of age and above).
