"Who knows, God may relent and forgive, and withhold his blazing wrath,so that we shall not perish.” These are the words of the King of Ninevah as he called for a day of repentance in the first reading today. Notice he says "Who Knows". We know. The Church knows. In Christ Jesus we know that God is Merciful. We know in Christ Jesus that God loves us. We belong to Him. We are His beloved children. We must repent. We must turn away from sin. We are called to believe in the Gospel. We are not left wondering. We are not orphans. We do not say "who knows". We know! We know.! His Mercy and His Love endure forever.
