Reading 1 EZ 2:2-5

As the LORD spoke to me, the spirit entered into me
and set me on my feet,
and I heard the one who was speaking say to me:
Son of man, I am sending you to the Israelites,
rebels who have rebelled against me;

Reflection on this Weekend’s Readings
As we read the historical books of the Old Testament, the history of the Chosen People of Israel, we realize what a sad commentary it is on the disloyalty of human beings in their relationship with God. This disobedience to God was not only something the Jews did; in fact it continues even to this day, and even in greater numbers by many so-called Christians.

God had been a Father to the Israelites, ever since he brought them out of the slavery of Egypt. But even during the desert journey to the Promised Land they murmured and rebelled against God. When they eventually settled in Canaan, with the help of his almighty hand, they very soon forgot him. Harassed by the neighboring pagan people, they finally remembered God and called on him. He then sent them the Judges to free them from their enemies. He allowed them to establish a monarchy and he aided and assisted the first occupants of the throne.
