11-19-15 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

November 19, 2015
As Jesus drew near Jerusalem, he saw the city and wept over it, saying, “If this day you only knew what makes for peace – but now it is hidden from your eyes.  For the days are coming upon you when your enemies will raise a palisade against you; they will encircle you and hem you in on all sides.  They will smash you to the ground and your children within you, and they will not leave one stone upon another within you because you did not recognize the time of your visitation.”  Lk_19:41-44

Jesus foresaw the coming disaster, imminent in the signs all around them.  All it took was a little vision, a little common sense.  We can see the signs in today’s world as well, beloved, especially in America, where many sit in the comfort of their wealth and ignore them.  But the signs are obvious.  From the weakness of our country’s leadership to the attitudes of its people – molded by the media.  When the enemy can so easily get us arguing against one another over the silliest things.  When morality and faith have gone out the window, and killing, revenge, divorce, indecision, and an absence of integrity are rampant, then we will be easy prey for them.

So stay close to the Lord, beloved.  Love one another.  Mercifully forgive.  And above all, pray for all of God’s children – for the safety of those who know Him and for the conversion of those who don’t.  And always rest in the peace that only Christ can offer!
