2 microphones 两支麦克风

When God wanted to destroy Nineveh because of their wickedness, he sent Jonah to warn them.

The King of Nineveh heard the words, immediately put on sackcloth, sat down in ashes, and ordered all his men and beasts, herds and flocks in the land to taste nothing, must not eat, must not drink water, put on sackcloth and call on God with all their might; and let every one renounce his evil behaviour and the wicked things he has done...

God saw their efforts and relented. He did not inflict on them the disaster which he had threatened.

When 2 expensive microphones were missing from the Choir section, the Parish Priest of our church ordered the choir to stop singing and no music at all Masses for the whole month of July. All parishioners, especially the choir and AV members, were told to reflect on it and .......

This evening was the first Mass without choir and music. Singing was led by the commentator whose voice was ...kind of sorrowful... and slow.

God saw... but no response! May be this is the 1st week only! (God gave 40 days to Niveveh to repent)


尼尼微的国王听到了这个警告之后,他马上披上麻衣,坐在灰土中,并下令全国的人 、牲畜 、牛和羊都不可以吃什么;不可放牧,不可喝水,应披上麻衣,要恳切的呼求天主,更要转离自己的邪路,放弃各种暴行。。。

Actually the posting told 2 stories:
a story of patient and passion AND another story of anger and punishment.

What do you think ?
