The Church has been here for two thousand years and its' truth is still being challenged. If we are to keep our faith, we need to know it. Of course, this is nothing new as we hear in both readings today.
It is frustrating to read about Pope Francis in the newspapers or hear about him on television. He is being portrayed as getting ready to change Church teaching to get it more in step with so-called modern culture.
Today's readings remind us that there is nothing new under the sun. In our first reading Jeremiah has said some things that the people in power didn't want to hear. What he protested against was really quite obvious.
