9th Sunday after Pentecost 2014
We are given tremendous encouragements in this Mass. Fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and it is that fear which we are taught today. Even as the elect, we can still be lost, but God is faithful and will not abandon us. Just as Christ wept over the city of Jerusalem, we feel sorrow for those who have turned away from God and will endure His just punishments. We are all soldiers of Christ who must remain strong and continue to pray for our enemies.
