This Week’s Gospel Message

Thursday, November 25th, 2021

This week’s Gospel message for Sunday, November 28th is from Luke 21:25-28, 34-36.

“Jesus said to his disciples . . . ‘Be vigilant at all times and pray that you have the strength to escape the tribulations that are imminent and to stand before the Son of Man.’”

“Advent is a time to prepare for the coming of the Lord. Perhaps the secret to preparing for the Lord’s coming—at Christmas, at the Last Judgment, or fully into our hearts—is to act as if the Lord is already here. After all, he is. Do we see the Lord in our brother and sister in need? The more willingly we see the Lord in our neighbor, the more easily we love those whom we would otherwise overlook, dismiss, or outright reject. How easily do we focus our love solely on our own loved ones or just ourselves? May we see Jesus in all those in need and act accordingly.” SOURCE: Pastoral Patterns, Winter 2021-2022
