the people of Nineveh believed God

March 13, 2019 6:00 am

“Jonah began his journey through the city, and had gone but a single day’s walk announcing, ‘Forty days more and Nineveh shall be destroyed,’ when the people of Nineveh believed God; they proclaimed a fast and all of them, great and small, put on sackcloth.” (JON 3: 4-5)

It was Jonah who announced the news: “Forty days more and Nineveh shall be destroyed,” and “the people of Nineveh believed God.” How important is the role of prophets—they announced God’s will, God’s plans to save our lives. We also started this Lent to cooperate with God’s will and to return to Him with our “whole heart” because He is “gracious and merciful.”

“Even now, says the LORD, return to me with your whole heart for I am gracious and merciful.” (Gospel Acclamation)
