*****Repent Now or Perish!*****

        From yesterday's first reading from Jonah 3, we learned that Jonah went to Nineveh according to the LORD's bidding to announce to the people that forty days more and their city would be destroyed. The people believed in God and proclaimed a fast and all of them put on sackcloth. Even the king and his nobles joined in. The king decreed every man to turn from his evil way and from the violence he had in hand. God saw all that, relented and withheld his wrath so that they should not perish. Good for the people of Nineveh. Looking at our own nation, my guess is that no even half of the population would repent when asked by God to do so. Whether this would be good enough for the Lord to change his mind, I do not know. In the Gospel reading from Luke 11, Jesus condemned his generation seeking a sign as an evil generation. I'd like you to hear Fr. Mark's talk in this video about our generation. It is his most powerful presentation to date. It climaxes as it ends. Don't miss it and pass it around. It's wake-up time!
