Advent Quote of the Day 10

And as Jesus prepares for the messianic entry into the city which will kill him as it has killed all the prophets, he bursts into tears - surely the most moving scene in the Gospel, eternal love being forced to weep over the strength of human rejection: "Would that even today you knew the things that make for peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes."

- Hans Urs von Balthasar, Does Jesus Know Us? Do We Know Him?
