Happy Thanksgiving! 🦃
Today's #GospelToday was 8 characters over the 500 character limit. SO, I increased the limit to 512! (a nice, round power of 2)
I had already developed the code to make this configurable for RCsocial.net, but had not used it. It works perfectly.
I have found 500 characters to be sometimes tight. Mastodon handles longer messages (but has a hard-coded 500 char limit when creating them).
I am thinking about 750 or 1,024 as the limit. Any thoughts? Another site goes to 65535.
#GospelToday (Lk 19:41-44):
As Jesus drew near Jerusalem, he saw the city and wept over it, saying, "If this day you only knew what makes for peace – but now it is hidden from your eyes. For the days are coming upon you when your enemies will raise a palisade against you; they will encircle you and hem you in on all sides. They will smash you to the ground and your children within you, and they will not leave one stone upon another within you because you did not recognize the time of your visitation."
#GospelToday (Lk 19:26-27):
‘I tell you, to everyone who has, more will be given, but from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away.
Now as for those enemies of mine who did not want me as their king, bring them here and slay them before me.’”
#GospelToday (Lk 19:9-10):
And Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house because this man too is a descendant of Abraham.
For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save what was lost.”

You are under surveillance and are being manipulated by media. Google started out with noble goals, but those days are long past.
This is an amazing intercession:
#GospelToday (Lk 18:41-42):
“What do you want me to do for you?” He replied, “Lord, please let me see.” Jesus told him, “Have sight; your faith has saved you.”
#GospelToday (Mk 13:31):
Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.
#GospelToday (Lk 18:7-8):
Will not God then secure the rights of his chosen ones who call out to him day and night? Will he be slow to answer them?
I tell you, he will see to it that justice is done for them speedily. But when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?”
#GospelToday (Lk 17:33):
Whoever seeks to preserve his life will lose it, but whoever loses it will save it.
#GospelToday (Lk 17:20-21):
Asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, he said in reply, “The coming of the kingdom of God cannot be observed, and no one will announce, ‘Look, here it is,’ or, ‘There it is.’ For behold, the kingdom of God is among you.”
#GospelToday (Lk 17:19):
Then he said to him, “Stand up and go; your faith has saved you.”

#GospelToday (Mk 12:43-44):
Calling his disciples to himself, he said to them, “Amen, I say to you, this poor widow put in more than all the other contributors to the treasury.
For they have all contributed from their surplus wealth, but she, from her poverty, has contributed all she had, her whole livelihood.”
#GospelToday (Lk 16:15):
And he said to them, “You justify yourselves in the sight of others, but God knows your hearts; for what is of human esteem is an abomination in the sight of God.
#GospelToday (Lk: 15:10):
In just the same way, I tell you, there will be rejoicing among the angels of God over one sinner who repents.”
