In these final days of the Liturgical Year, the readings draw our attention to the Final Days.

Jesus teaches that the heavens and the earth will pass away, and he will return with judgment. He also teaches in today’s Gospel that the Word of God will not pass away.

Do our actions and desires reflect that we are now attentive the the things that will endure?

Certainly Jesus’ teaching indicates why it is so important for us to give him priority in this life. Prayer, Sacraments, especially the celebration of the Eucharist, help us grow in our life in Christ and to advance God’s Kingdom.

Let us be attentive to the Holy Spirit who is always the life-blood of the Church. Let us bear the fruit of God’s word, as we seek each day what we pray for daily:

Your Kingdom come …

Your will be done …
