33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time

Posted on Updated on

Originally delivered on November 15, 1992

Readings: Malachi 3:19-20; Thessalonians 3:7-12; Luke 21: 5-19

We live with earthquakes, famine, war, and all sorts of tragedies.  We needn’t fear the future because we are living in hell already. We also have the ability to bring the Risen Lord into our lives right now. We are not being scared by God by the darkness in our society or lives, but rather, we are told that we, each and every one of us, can bring lightness to the world.  We are reminded that life is indeed short, no matter how long we are here on Earth.  Time is precious.  We must act now to make our lives meaningful, by helping others and bringing God’s light to the world.  We are called to bring our deepest passion to the struggle, the struggle for justice and truth in a very cruel and unjust world, without nurturing a personal need for a tangible success.  We must trust in God to triumph and to give it meaning.  Each moment of our lives is a sacred grace.  Our witness counts.
