My words will never pass away

God’s kingdom is both near and far.

God’s kingdom is both near and far.  
In the Gospel of Luke the parable Jesus told emphasizes that the kingdom of God, like the coming of summer is near. But then the passage expands the nearness point by saying, “This generation will not pass away until all these things have taken place.” So we seem to have it both ways. God’s kingdom is both near and far. Apart from those who are convinced that the end of the world can come any day now, most of us know from scripture that we do not know the hour or day and that it will come when we least expect it too. Nevertheless, we hope for the eventual end of a world full of persecution, suffering, discrimination and war. Ending this liturgical year, we pray that our new holy year in the Lord, will be one of peace, forgiveness, and increased aid to those who lack freedom, food, shelter, security, employment with just wages, and good health.
We can be grateful that our heavenly Father’s words will not pass away but will be heard every day, by our prayer and celebration of the Mass. We do not know the day nor the hour when Christ Jesus will return again in glory.
Points to Pray and Ponder: Jesus gives us signs, to “wake us up” and “rouse our spirits” to be ready! Will you be ready?
