Fr Dzungwe
Jesus in the gospel today makes us to understand that the misfortune that brings suffering cannot be understood exclusively as a punishment for personal sins. Jesus declares: "No; but unless you repent you will all perish likewise" (Luke 13:3). It means that if we repent we shall not perish. Repentance means turning away from sin and turning to God - conversion.  Turning to God requires recollection and concentration.
