DG BookGospel: Luke 12:8-12
I tell you, whoever acknowledges me before people, the Son of Man will also acknowledge before the angels of God.
But the one who denies me before others will be denied before the angels of God. There will be pardon for the one who criticizes the Son of Man,
but there will be no pardon for the one who slanders the Holy Spirit. When you are brought before the synagogues, and before go­vernors and rulers,
don’t worry about how you will defend yourself, or what to say; for the Holy Spirit will teach you at that time what you have to say.”

REFLECTION:
This week we saw how Jesus found opposition from the leaders of the Jews.
We conclude this week with Jesus as­king his disciples to be faithful to him even unto death. Refusing to acknowledge him as Lord is formula for damnation.
The sin of slander against the Holy Spirit mentioned in the Gospel is denying Jesus as Lord and Savior.
It is a sin that cannot be pardoned for it is refusal to acknowledge the need for the Savior.
St. Ignatius of Antioch (107+) was a martyr of the early church who acknowledged Jesus as Lord and Savior.
He wrote some letters exhorting Christians to remain faithful and not to be afraid of the rulers of this world.
He testified to the power of Jesus Christ who is “far above all rule, power, authority, dominion” whether of this world or of the underworld.
He encouraged them to remain faithful to the Bishop of Rome and be true Catholics.
In our world today there are forces that demand that we give up what we believe in,
to compromise our moral principles, to adopt secular values. It is a time to become confident in the truth we confess,
to be Catholic not only in name but in practice.
