The last day

It’s the last day of the year—the liturgical year, that is. Tomorrow is the beginning of a new liturgical year, a new cycle of readings, and a new season of joyful hope. Good thing, because the readings for the past few weeks, like today’s, have been words of warning and apprehension regarding the “eschaton,” which means the end of the world. It all sounds terrifying, but it is good news, for however you prefer to interpret it, literally or figuratively, unless this world passes away in some way, the kingdom Jesus preached isn’t fully realized. Pray God’s kingdom come!

Today's readings:

Revelation 22:1-7; Luke 21:34-36 (508).

“Be vigilant at all times and pray that you have the strength to escape the tribulations.”
