“But within sixty years and five, Ephraim shall be crushed, no longer a nation” (Is 7:9).
Our perspective for time and God’s perspective are different. God can patiently wait long enough for our conversion; when we wait for something, we expect it to happen immediately. Everyday readings give us an excellent opportunity to hear Our Lord’s voice and to change our expectations.
“I will look after my sheep, says the Lord, and I will appoint a shepherd to pasture them, and I, the Lord, will be their God” (Entrance Antiphon).
