          The Hebrews were brought into exile not just because they were weaker than their neighbors, but because they deserted the God who had formed them into His people. No, they had not stopped worshiping in the Temple, but their faith in God was very much just lip service. They joined in with the pagan customs of those around them. They practiced pagan immorality. They even offered their children for child sacrifice to the pagan gods. They adopted pagan glorification of the material over the spiritual. For all these sins, God let them be led into exile. Once in exile, the people realized that there was no hope for them to free themselves. They were captives of a powerful kingdom. They realized that they were completely dependent on God to free them. They needed Him to work his Power and Might for them. Baruch prophesied that God would deliver them. And he did.
          The condition the Hebrew people were in is not all that different than our human condition. So many people give lip service to religion, but live as pagans. So many people join in with the glorification of the material over the spiritual. Immorality attacks us every day. Sometimes it is out in the world. Sometimes it is within our families. Often it is within each of us. We want to, we have to fight evil, but it is stronger than we are, at least when we are left by ourselves. So we call upon God to deliver us from evil. He is more powerful than any thing that is attacking us. He frees us from all that holds us captive.
- Excerpted from Rev. Msgr. Joseph A. Pellegrino, Diocese of St. Petersburg FL
