Mindful of my imperfections, seeking to know Truth more deeply and to live Love more fully.

Quid sum miser tunc dicturus? Quem patronum rogaturus? Cum vix iustus sit securus?
Recordare, Iesu pie, Quod sum causa tuae viae: Ne me perdas illa die...

When you see these things happening...

In today’s Gospel (Luke 21:29-33), our Lord winds down his discussion of the end times with these words of advice:

When you see these things happening,
know that the Kingdom of God is near.

In the nearly two thousand years since our Lord spoke those words, there has probably never been a time when people could not see at least some signs of the end time happening.

What this means is that the end could come at any time: the end of THE world or the end of OUR world (when we die).

We need to remember this and live always as if Christ could call us to judgment at any time.

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the living God, be merciful to me – a sinner.
