MEDITATION FOR THE THIRD FRIDAY OF SEPTEMBER
(taken from The Devotion to the Sacred Heart Fr. John Croiset, S.J)
“And when he drew near, seeing the city, he wept over it, saying; If thou hadst known, and that in this thy day, the things that are to thy peace; but now they are hidden from thy eyes.” (Luke 19:41-42).
How well those tears of Jesus express the sentiments of His Heart!. Unhappy Jerusalem! Unfortunate people! Into how many evils does not your blindness precipitate you! What will you say when you see that you had your happiness in your own hands and that it rested with you alone to be the happiest of all peoples, if you had only been willing to recognize on this day the Best of all masters, the Meekest of all kings? If Jesus Christ were still capable of feeling sorrow and shedding tears, loving us as He does, could He look on us without weeping? Could He consider the indifference which we have for Him in the Blessed Eucharist, the contempt with which we treat Him and the evils which this contempt and indifference bring down on us, without saying to us as He said to this unfortunate people: “Ah! ungrateful and cowardly Christians; if you did know in this day which is given to you, Him who is in the midst of you, who alone can bring you peace and render you eternally happy! But now all this is hidden from your eyes. You do not wish to know Me, for how could you be so unhappy, if knowing Me, you did love Me?”
