For 10 December 2021, Friday of the second week of Advent, based on Matthew 11:16-19
Jesus said, â€˜But to what will I compare this generation? It is like children sitting in the market-places and calling to one another,
â€œWe played the flute for you, and you did not dance;
we wailed, and you did not mourn.â€
For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, â€œHe has a demonâ€; the Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, â€œLook, a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax-collectors and sinners!â€ Yet wisdom is vindicated by her deeds.â€™
