Homily (Reflection) for Tuesday of the Thirty-Fourth Week in Ordinary Time (I) (28th November, 2017) on the Gospel
Dan 3:57-61. (R.v.59);
Topic: A must come.
Jesus said to those speaking about how the temple was adorned with beautiful stones and gifts dedicated to God, “As for these things that you see, the days will come when not one stone will be left upon another; all will be thrown down.”
Although they sought for signs of the inevitable destruction, they were not offered any because it was not necessary. Jesus informed them that many things will happen and that many will either claim to be He or knows where He is. But in all these, He urged all to be unwavering.
Just like the temple of Jerusalem, people admire a lot of things we received from God. However, the days will come when one stone will not be left upon another in each and every one of us. What will save us is not in the signs but in living out our call as Christians in every circumstance. Let us conclude with a very good advice from Saint Peter:
The end of all things is near; therefore be serious and discipline yourselves.... maintain constant love for one another without complaining. Like good stewards of the manifold grace of God, serve one another with whatever gift each of you has received (1Pt 4:7-10)
Bible Reading: 1Pt 4:1-11.
Thought for today: Be prepared.
Let us pray: Lord, give us the grace to be ever ready for you – Amen.
