Fr. Mike reflects on Jeremiah’s sorrow for the people of Israel while reminding us that the one thing we ought to find glory in, is in understanding and knowing God. In our reading of Ezekiel, we hear about God’s ongoing promise to restore Israel. Today’s readings are Jeremiah 9, Ezekiel 39, and Proverbs 15:1-4.

We hear every day from our community how The Bible in a Year helps to capture hearts and souls for Christ. While we’re happy to make it free to our audience, it’s not free to create! It takes a significant investment to produce the podcast and distribute it free-of-cost to the public. You can make a gift of financial support to help defray these costs and enable us to keep bringing evangelizing digital media to all those searching for God: https://tinyurl.com/yfs8kwo3 Thank you for your support.

  1. There is a neat 3D animation of the floor plan on You Tube – worth checking out if you have a hard time visualising these 'cubits' and 'reed' (well i did!) I found it helpful aid to visualising what was being described. Thought I'd pass this on in case anyone else finds it helpful. Sorry if I am repeating a previous comment – haven't checked them all.

  2. Ezekiel 40
    2 – In a vision God took me to the land of Israel and put me on a high mountain. I saw in front
    of me a group of buildings that looked like a city.
    3 – He took me closer, and I saw a man who shone like bronze. He was holding a linen tape measure and a measuring rod and was standing by a gateway.
    4 – He said to me, "Watch, mortal man. Listen carefully and pay close attention to everything I show you, because this is why you were brought here. You are to tell the people of Israel everything you see."

    45 – The man told me that the room which faced south was for the priests who served in the Temple,
    46 – and the room which faced north was for the priests who served at the altar. All the priests are descended from Zadok ; they are the only members of the tribe of Levi who are permitted to go into the Lord's presence to serve Him.
    47 – The man measured the inner courtyard, and it was 168 feet square.
    The Temple was on the West side, and in front of it was an altar. 📖🕯

  3. Jeremiah 10
    6 – Lord, there is no one like you ; you are mighty,
    and your name is great and powerful.
    7 – Who would not honor you, the King of all nations? You deserve to be honored. There is no one like you among all the wise men of the nations or among any of their kings.

    10 – But you Lord, are the true God, you are the living God and the eternal King.

    12 – The Lord made the earth by his power ; by his wisdom he created the world and stretched out the heavens.
    13 – At his command the waters above the sky roar ; he brings clouds from the ends of the earth. He makes lightening flash in the rain and sends the wind from his storeroom.

    23 – Lord, I know that none of us are in charge of our own destiny ; none of us have control over our own life.
    24 – Correct your people, Lord, but do not be too hard on us or punish us when you are angry ; that would be the end of us.

  4. I understand Jeremiahs concern for Gods people. It breaks my heart that so many souls continue in mortal sin. I pray for Fr Mike and all who study the BIAY. Please pray for those who don’t. God Bless.

  5. We are here but for a fleeting moment. Let us bring goodness, let us spread the good Word, and let us use our time to pray.
    Prayers for Souls in Purgatory.
    Forgive me for I am a sinner.
    God Bless you all.
