Their backs, not their faces

“…they obeyed not, nor did they pay heed. They walked in the hardness of their evil hearts and turned their backs, not their faces, to me.” (JER 7: 24)

What sadness we can hear in the voice of God the Father.  God, who loves us, takes care of us and always communicates how important we are for Him, is confronted with “their backs, not their faces.” Even a short visit in the church ora few minutes of adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, when we look at him and our hearts and faces are focused on Him, can bring consolation to God.

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