Reflection for Thursday November 20, Thirty-third Week in Ordinary Time; Luke 19:41-44

Gospel: Luke 19:41-44
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.”

Reflection:
Why is it that some people are so peaceful and not worried about life even if the environment around them is worrisome? The reason behind is they’ve learned to surrender everything to Jesus. They listen to Jesus by way of their active prayer life and they’ve let Jesus take control of their lives and not them taking control.

When Jesus was nearing Jerusalem He was very sad and He wept for its people because they did not listen to God’s call of repentance (Through the prophets). They purposely blinded themselves to the reality of repentance, why? Because they love to sin and they liked what this sinful world offered them, they never cared to be concerned of the punishing outcome of their sinfulness.

Jesus loves us so dearly that He wants all of us to listen to Him. So that we could be spared of the dreadful punishment that is due to those who do not care to listen to Him. He also weep for  us everytime we sin, everytime we don’t to listen to Him.

When everything is said and done and we are already suffering for the reason of our sinfulness we have nobody to blame but ourselves. However, why let this very harsh event called punishment come to us? When we could actually avoid it by means of opening our hearts to the love and mercy of Jesus. - Marino J. Dasmarinas
