A lone voice in the sinful city
Selfish and wayward people seem to outnumber those who hold firmly to the truth that comes from God.
The example of the prophet Jonah, which we hear in today’s first reading (Jonah 3:1-5, 10), gives us hope.
One man speaks the truth loudly and clearly in the midst of a large and sinful city.
And the city repents, by the grace and power of God.
May God give us the grace, the wisdom, and the strength to be as effective as Jonah in the large and sinful cities through which we walk.
