Readings: Rev. 5:1-10 | Ps. 149:1-6a, 9b | Lk. 19:41-44
Revelations tells us of the One who is coming who will restore Israel to a right relationship with God. Without doubt, we know that this applies to Jesus, who was the lamb, crucified, died and buried for all of us. Jesus is weeping over Jerusalem. He has spent that last three years trying to teach the people about God and how to live. However the people, most especially the leaders of the Jews, have refused to listen to Him. Thus, He stands at the hill of Jerusalem and laments that all He has said and done seems to have been done in vain.
Slowly read the Gospel and allow yourself time to imagine this scene. How do you think Jesus felt on this occasion? How would you feel? How do you listen to and carry out the Gospel?
