After watching this video I felt pained seeing how easy it was for them to intensely weep over cut down trees – which is hardly a cause for crying. Particularly when I considered how little I weep, with any heartfelt intensity, both over my own sins and over the sins of the Church – a cause which all Christians are called to cry over.
You adulterous people! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God… Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Be wretched and mourn and weep. Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom.
– James 4:4, 8-10
