Thursday: Thirty-fourth Week in Ordinary Time

Psalm 136:1,26: Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good. His love endures forever. Give thanks to the God of heaven. His love endures forever.
Prayer ...
Holy and Righteous Father, thank you for giving us Jesus as the demonstration of your love. We love you Heavenly Father. We love you for who you are and what you have done. We love you for what you have promised. We love you for the blessings you shower upon us. We love you for giving us hope. We love you because you first loved us. We love you because you are worthy of all love. But we confess that our love is not as strong as yours, so please, fill us with your love by the power of the Holy Spirit. In the name of Infant Jesus, we lift our heart to you. Amen.

20"But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation has come near. 21Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, and let those who are inside the city depart, and let not those who are out in the country enter it; 22for these are days of vengeance, to fulfil all that is written. 23Alas for those who are with child and for those who give suck in those days! For great distress shall be upon the earth and wrath upon this people; 24they will fall by the edge of the sword, and be led captive among all nations; and Jerusalem will be trodden down by the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled. 25"And there will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and upon the earth distress of nations in perplexity at the roaring of the sea and the waves, 26men fainting with fear and with foreboding of what is coming on the world; for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 27And then they will see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28Now when these things begin to take place, look up and raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.
Meditation on Today's Scripture:
The greatest gift which no one can take from us and which we can be most thankful for is our salvation through the precious blood of Jesus, which was shed on the cross for our sins, and our acceptance through Jesus as children of God our heavenly Father. Jesus has saved us from slavery to sin, from fear of death, and from final destruction. We can be eternally thankful because our hope is anchored in heaven and in the assure that Jesus will return to fully establish his reign of peace and uprightness. Jesus speaks of his second coming as a known fact, for convinced event which we can assertively expect to take place in the Lord's time of choosing. This coming will be marked by signs that all will recognize signs which will hit terror and grief in those who are not ready and wonder and joy in those who are ready to meet the Lord. When the Lord Jesus returns he will fully set up his kingdom of justice and righteousness and he will justify all who have been faithful to him. His judgment is a sign of hope for those who have placed their faith in him. Do we hope in God and in the assurance of Jesus to return again to establish his reign of virtue and peace? Loving Infant Jesus, fill us with gratitude for the gift of salvation and increase our hope and longing for your return again in glory. May that day bring joy to our heart rather than sorrow. Help us to serve you faithfully and to make the best use of our time now in the light of your coming again.
