May 14: Jacob’s Trouble: God unique relationship with Israel

All sin is sin

God doesn’t “rate” sin only man does.  God is holy and He considers equally offensive the lack of faith and murder of thousands.

 

Hebrews 11:6

But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

 

Psalm 78:56-62

Yet they tested and provoked the Most High God,
And did not keep His testimonies,
But turned back and acted unfaithfully like their fathers;
They were turned aside like a deceitful bow.
For they provoked Him to anger with their high places,
And moved Him to jealousy with their carved images.
When God heard this, He was furious,
And greatly abhorred Israel,
So that He forsook the tabernacle of Shiloh,
The tent He had placed among men,
 And delivered His strength into captivity,
And His glory into the enemy’s hand.
 He also gave His people over to the sword,
And was furious with His inheritance.

 

PRAY THE JEWISH PEOPLE WILL RECOGNIZE AND CONFESS THEIR SIN OF UNBELIEF AND SEARCH FOR GOD WITH ALL THEIR HEARTS.

Monsignor Giuseppe Nicolini was the Bishop of Assisi, home of the Franciscan order. Prior to the Holocaust, it did not have a Jewish community. During the Holocaust Nicolini and others provided shelter to many Jews or gave aid to help them escape. Many were hidden in cloisters closed to all outsiders.
