Quid sum miser tunc dicturus? Quem patronum rogaturus? Cum vix iustus sit securus?

"The way of the wicked vanishes"

The last verse of today’s Responsorial (Psalm 1:1-2, 3, 4, and 6) offers an intriguing comparison:

For the LORD watches over the way of the just,
but the way of the wicked vanishes.

The way of the wicked leads to nothingness.

The way of the wicked is like being in the middle of an empty desert with no path.

The way of the wicked is meaningless.

Blessed the man who follows not
the counsel of the wicked
Nor walks in the way of sinners,
nor sits in the company of the insolent,
But delights in the law of the LORD
and meditates on his law day and night.
