Luke 21, 20-28

by Fr. Luis A. Zazano

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 21, 20-28

‘When you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation has come near. Then those in Judea must flee to the mountains, and those inside the city must leave it, and those out in the country must not enter it; for these are days of vengeance, as a fulfilment of all that is written. Woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing infants in those days! For there will be great distress on the earth and wrath against this people; they will fall by the edge of the sword and be taken away as captives among all nations; and Jerusalem will be trampled on by the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled. ‘There will be signs in the sun, the moon, and the stars, and on the earth distress among nations confused by the roaring of the sea and the waves. People will faint from fear and foreboding of what is coming upon the world, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then they will see “the Son of Man coming in a cloud” with power and great glory. Now when these things begin to take place, stand up and raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.’

When you see

1) The signs. You may think that Jesus is very insistent, but it is necessary. There are signs that we must learn to see. We must learn to see signs that call our attention. For example, young people that believe in God, but not in the Church, and people who belong to a Church and who are constantly fighting among themselves and not giving testimonies of our faith. Today, we must see and challenge ourselves to bring God’s peace to many.

2) God never leaves you. Jesus is always on your side and encourages you to fight on, reminding you that he is always with you. He wants to share everything with you and to have a personal and living experience with you. He awaits your initiative.

3) Hold your head high. This is to remind you that you have dignity and a life to live with courage. Your life is worth a lot, do not let others diminish it and do not let it be manipulated by anything or anyone. Give yourself the chance to be happy.

God bless you in the name of the Father, of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
And remember, Heaven is Our Goal !
