(Jeremiah 11)

“. . . Let us cut him off from the land of the living so that his name will be spoken no more.”

Reflection:
At the beginning of Lent, the prophet Jeremiah reminds us of the fierce vengeance that awaits the arrival of the long expected Messiah, Jesus the Christ.

Prayer:
Lord God, you so loved the world that you sent your beloved Son. Who would have guessed the welcome that awaited him?
