Jesus weeping over Jerusalem is a sight to behold. Didn’t he say, ‘How often have I longed to gather your children together as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings and you refused.” Matt 23:37. The care, the concern of a heart longing for the love of the other. Are we not this Jerusalem? What have we done to grieve our Lord? Why turn a deaf ear to his summons? What kept us blinded to the truth? Many things are happening around us. Why the grumbling¸ the distortions, the killings even among parents, relatives and children? Indeed, the world is sick!
And yet in his depression¸ our Lord still offers a loving response from his compassionate and loving heart…” not a hair of your head will be lost; your perseverance will win your lives” (Chapter 21: 18-19). Our God is indeed a loving God and his love is unconditional.
