I'd like to better understand the passage below from today's gospel reading from Luke:
Jesus turned to them and said, “Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me; weep instead for yourselves and for your children,
for indeed, the days are coming when people will say, ‘Blessed are the barren, the wombs that never bore and the breasts that never nursed.’
At that time people will say to the mountains, ‘Fall upon us!’ and to the hills, ‘Cover us!’o
for if these things are done when the wood is green what will happen when it is dry?”
Thanks in advance!
