Is 10:5-7, 13-16; Ps 94:5-10, 15; Mt 11:25-27

Our psalm refrain is the affirmation of a people who have tested the LORD and tried his patience throughout the ages. With them we too acclaim that, “The Lord will not abandon his people.” Through every age the People of God have been trampled down and his inheritance has been afflicted.

�Is 7:1-9��; Ps 48:2-8; �Mt 11:20-24�

The joy of all the earth is not a great city or even a wilderness paradise. The joy of all the earth is the LORD God Almighty, creator of heaven and earth. The Great King’s city is a threat to any assembly of kings who come together to conquer and destroy. They behold the LORD’s glory and are at once stunned, terrified, and routed.

When I read the Gospel I thought of a verse from the letter of St. Paul to the Galatians; ”Make no mistake: God is not mocked, for a person will reap only what he sows, because the one who sows for his flesh will reap corruption from the flesh, but the one who sows for the spirit will reap eternal life from the spirit.”
