In his love and in his pity he redeemed them; he lifted them up and carried them all the days of old.
On His final day of public teaching Jesus can only look out at these people, loved by their God for centuries and centuries, and feel the weight of a great sadness. There are so many things to distract them from the love story of their God for them. Is there still time for them to seize the lesson and make it real in their lives?
In prayer let us remember and give thanks for this God of love who has been revealed to us.
