In our Gospel we see Jesus weeping over the holy city of Jerusalem. I talked to my good friend in Jerusalem this morning and they are still having a very difficult tome with no tourists. Please pray for them !
I have stood on the Mount of Olives four times and looked at the Holy City with tears on my eyes also because it is so beautiful and inspiring. I thought about his joyful entrance on Palm Sunday, his Crucifixion, his Resurrection and I could not help but get tears in my eyes.
Jesus gives us the grace to turn away from sin, but that time is right now. Looking at the Holy City I cannot help but think of all he has done for us. So let us accept the grace to turn away from sin and walk in God’s way of holiness and peace ! Remember Jerusalem derived from the word “Salem” which means peace.
Peace be with you my friends !!
