Gospel: Luke 19:41-44
When Jesus had come in sight of the city, he wept over it, and said, “If only today
you knew the ways of peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes. Yet days
will come upon you, when your enemies will surround you with barricades, and shut

you in, and press on you from every side. And they will dash you to the ground and your children
with you, and not leave stone upon stone within you, for you did not recognize the time and the
visitation of your God.”

Reflect:

Today’s readings are full of tears. John weeps over the realization that no human being is worthy
to open the scrolls and break the seals. Following his triumphant entry into the city of Jerusalem,
Jesus pauses for a moment and weeps over the destiny of the city brought about by its failure
to discern God’s ways. When one looks around the world and sees the many human atrocities
happening, one can only shed tears over the hardheartedness of humanity. One wonders if
a transformation is possible. However, those with faith can never lose hope. As John realized
soon, there was, indeed, someone worthy to open the Book: The Lamb that was slain, yet alive
and standing. Jesus, having shed tears, would soon break open the doors of salvation not only
for Jerusalem, but for the entire world: for any person willing to believe in him. This is the hope
that must keep us going even as we fight darkness.
