Reflections of Faith
Read and be inspired by a reflection based on today's Gospel made by members of the Verbum Dei Family in Manila.
November 22,2018 – Thursday
Gospel: Luke 19:41-44
Cry with me
“…he saw the city and wept over it, saying, ‘If this day you only knew what makes for peace’ ”. When you walk in the streets, watch the news, do you see the sad realities of the world? Does it also make you cry?
Pope Francis once told us, “the world of today lacks the capacity of knowing how to cry.” Sometimes we need to go with Jesus so he can show us what’s making him cry. And as we cry with him, there we receive the grace for our hearts not to grow numb but to grow in love.
St Cecilia, may the song in heart always sing a hymn of love for the ones in need.
