03-27-20 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

March 27, 2020

Estimated by Scripture scholars to have been written some fifty years before the birth of Jesus, today’s Old Testament Reading from the Book of Wisdom is ‘bone quaking.’  For it could just as well have been written fifty years after His death.  I could not cut a word from this, maybe lengthy, but awesome piece! And I think it needs no commentary!  . . .

The wicked said among themselves, thinking not aright:
“Let us beset the just one, because he is obnoxious to us;
he sets himself against our doings,
reproaches us for transgressions of the law
and charges us with violations of our training.

He professes to have knowledge of God
and styles himself a child of the LORD.
To us he is the censure of our thoughts;
merely to see him is a hardship for us,
because his life is not like that of others,
and different are his ways.

He judges us debased; he holds aloof from our paths as from things impure.  He calls blest the destiny of the just and boasts that God is his Father.

Let us see whether his words be true;
let us find out what will happen to him.
For if the just one be the son of God, he will defend him
and deliver him from the hand of his foes.

With revilement and torture let us put him to the test that we may have proof of his gentleness and try his patience.

Let us condemn him to a shameful death; for according to his own words, God will take care of him.”

These were their thoughts, but they erred; for their wickedness blinded them, and they knew not the hidden counsels of God; neither did they count on a recompense of holiness nor discern the innocent souls’ reward.   Wis_2:1a,12-22

May our loving God bless you with peace and safety and health, beloved.  May the souls of the Faithful departed rest in peace.  And may we all one day join in the community of the saints with Jesus and the Holy Spirit in the Father’s kingdom forever!
