Thursday of the 33 week in ordinary time ‘b’
Jesus wept over the city of Jerusalem. Why? Because in that holy city, the people who lived in there missed the presence of the Messiah in their midst. There were signs, there were warnings, there were miracles, but still so many missed it. In a similar way, there are signs, warnings, and even miracles happening in our times that remind us of a presence of God in our midst. Some of us take them seriously and keep the faith, but some ignore them. There is still time to make changes, to convert, and to start believing. Jesus wept over Jerusalem because He was saddened that it would be destroyed. Let’s Just hope that Jesus won’t weep over us.
