Friday Thirty-Fourth Week Ordinary Time

Heavenly Father, please help us guard our heart and be wise enough not to place things into it that would rob it of its devotion to you. We want to be pure through and through. Please look for us and help us remove everything that would steal our devotion from you and that would ruin our influence with others for you. In the name of Infant Jesus we pray. Amen.
  WORD OF THE DAY ...
Jeremiah 17:9-10: The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it? "I the Lord search the heart and examine the mind, to reward a man according to his conduct, according to what his deeds deserve.

  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (Luke 21:29-33)
Jesus used the representation of a fig tree to teach his disciples a significant lesson about reading the "signs of the times." The fig tree was a ordinary and important source of food used for the Jews. It bore fruit two times a year, in the autumn and I and also in the early spring. The Talmud says that the first fruit will come the day after Passover. The Jews supposed that when the Messiah came he would guide in the kingdom of God at Passover time. The early symptoms of a changing season, such as springtime, summer, or autumn, are obvious for all who can see and watch the changes. Just so are the signs of God's kingdom and his return in glory on the judgment day. The "budding" of God's kingdom starts first in the hearts of those who are open to God's word. Those who trust in God's word will abide the fruits of his kingdom. And what could be the fruits of that kingdom? The Lord gives the first-fruits of his kingdom to those who open their hearts to him with hopeful faith and trust in his word.
