“When Israel was a child I loved him, out of Egypt I called my son. The more I called them, the farther they went from me, sacrificing to the Baals and burning incense to idols. Yet it was I who taught Ephraim to walk, who took them in my arms; I drew them with human cords, with bands of love; I fostered them like one who raises an infant to his cheeks; yet, though I stooped to feed my child, they did not know that I was their healer.” (HOS 11: 1-4)
Whatever happens in our lives is always important to Our Lord; He protects us and takes care of us because we are His children: “it was I who taught Ephraim to walk, who took them in my arms; I drew them with human cords, with bands of love.” And whenever we do something wrong, He comes as our healer.
“The Kingdom of God is at hand: repent and believe in the Gospel.” (Gospel Acclamation)
