02-03-14 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

February 3, 2014
(St. Blaise, Bishop and Martyr)
As David went up the Mount of Olives, he wept without ceasing.  His head was covered, and he was walking barefoot. All those who were with him also had their heads covered and were weeping as they went.  2 Sm 15:13 to 16:13

Two stories today.  David fleeing the wrath of his son Absalom and being taunted by an old relative of Saul’s, while praying for the Lord’s mercy.  And in our Gospel today we hear of a demon possessed man pleading for mercy from Jesus for his affliction (Mk 5:1-20).

Our God is a merciful God when we seek His forgiveness for our wrongdoings.  It’s interesting though, to read of David’s weeping on the Mount of Olives, the same place where 1000 years later the Lord Jesus Himself weeps for God’s mercy as he is about to be tortured and killed for the sins of all of us!  Thank you Jesus, and David, and God, and forgive us our trespasses, please!
