Commentary of the day : Saint Maximus of Turin
Answering God’s call to repent from the depths of our hearts

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 11:16-19.
Jesus said to the crowds: “To what shall I compare this generation? It is like children who sit in marketplaces and call to one another,
'We played the flute for you, but you did not dance, we sang a dirge but you did not mourn.'
For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they said, 'He is possessed by a demon.'
The Son of Man came eating and drinking and they said, 'Look, he is a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners.' But wisdom is vindicated by her works."
