“Jonah began his journey through the city,
and had gone but a single day's walk...
when the people of Nineveh believed God;
they proclaimed a fast and all of them,
great and small, put on sackcloth.”
“I tell you, brothers and sisters, the time is running out.”
“This is the time of fulfillment...”
This reflection is not written for sympathy, but it is a little bit of reality. I’m sure, with your family and work schedules, it is very similar to the lives you lead, so it’s also not about comparing, or heaven forbid, competing for whose life is busiest. It is just some insight into my schedule. I love being a priest and am not complaining or whining!
