This Week’s Gospel Message

Thursday, November 11th, 2021

This week’s Gospel message for Sunday, November 14th is from Mark 13:24-32.

“Jesus said to his disciples: ‘In those days after that tribulation the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will be falling from the sky, and the powers in the heavens will be shaken. And then they will see ‘the Son of Man coming in the clouds’ with great power and glory, and then he will send out the angels and gather his elect from the four winds, from the end of the earth to the end of the sky. . .But of that day or hour, no one knows, neither the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.’”

“Jesus warns his disciples that at the end of time the stars would fall from the sky and the sun would go dark. We are reminded that one day Jesus will return in glory as the world comes to an earth-shattering conclusion. As frightening as the warnings are in today’s readings, they are accompanied by assurances that God remains with us. Let us be reminded always to remain vigilant and to pray in thanksgiving for God’s abiding presence with us here on earth.” SOURCE: Pastoral Patterns, Autumn 2021

Today, there is an inescapable duty

to make ourselves the neighbor of every individual,

without exception, and to take positive steps

to help a neighbor whom we encounter.
