This Week’s Gospel Message

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2022

This week’s Gospel message for Sunday, November 27th is from Matthew 24:37-44.

“Jesus said to his disciples: ‘As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man…So too, you also must be prepared, for at an hour you do not expect, the Son of Man will come.’”

“Today’s Gospel passage opens with the kind of behaviors that Matthew refers to in the time of Noah, when people ignored the call to repentance and continued with their dissolute ways. As a result, they ere caught off guard when the flood came and destroyed the face of the earth. Our responsibility as followers of Christ is not to know how the Lord will judge but rather to be ready for that judgment at any hour.” SOURCE: Workbook for Lectors, Gospel Readers, and Proclaimers of the Word, 2023
