Commentary on the Gospel of
FOR I WILL GATHER YOU FROM ALL THE NATIONS AND BRING YOU BACK TO YOUR OWN LAND
Through Ezekiel, God promises to gather his scattered and exiled people and bring them back home to Israel. Interiorly, he vows to cleanse them of their defilement and, so as they might not stray again, replace their heart of stone with a heart of flesh.
On our own, despite our knowledge of the good and our good intentions, we commit sin and cling to our evil ways. God promises to put his spirit within us so that through grace operating within us we might be faithful to him and his decrees. Love within us will empower us to love without.
