Tuesday:Thirty-fourth Week in Ordinary Time

Colossians 3:16: Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God.
Prayer ...
Holy and Righteous Father, we are so thankful today, for all the many blessings you have poured into our life. Your love, grace, mercy, and pardon give us hope for the future. Your gift of Jesus gives us life today and promises life for tomorrow. The unbelievable physical blessings, as well as the blessings of family and friends are wonderful. But the greatest of all blessings is the assurance that we will one day see you face to face and share your glory presence forever. In Infant Jesus' name we thank and praise you. Amen.

5And as some spoke of the temple, how it was adorned with noble stones and offerings, he said, 6"As for these things which you see, the days will come when there shall not be left here one stone upon another that will not be thrown down." 7And they asked him, "Teacher, when will this be, and what will be the sign when this is about to take place?" 8And he said, "Take heed that you are not led astray; for many will come in my name, saying, `I am he!' and, `The time is at hand!' Do not go after them. 9And when you hear of wars and tumults, do not be terrified; for this must first take place, but the end will not be at once." 10Then he said to them, "Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; 11there will be great earthquakes, and in various places famines and pestilences; and there will be terrors and great signs from heaven.
Meditation on Today's Scripture:
Jesus' foretold the destruction of the temple at Jerusalem was a two-edged sword, since it pointed not only to God's judgment, but also to his saving achievement and mercy. Jesus predicted the destruction of Jerusalem and the terrible consequences for all who would reject him and his saving message. Sometimes we don't identify the moral crisis and spiritual conflict of the age in which we live, until something "shakes us up" to the reality of this present condition. God reminds us that a prospect judgment and outcome awaits every individual who has lived on this earth. The prize for doing what is right and pleasing to God and the punishment for sinful rebellion and rejection of God are not always skilled in this present life; but they are sure to come in the God's day of final judgment. The Lord Jesus tells us that there will be trials, anguish, and harassment in this present age until he comes again at the end of the world. God means our expectation of his final judgment to be a powerful deterrent to infidelity and wrongdoing. God expands grace and mercy to all who will heed his call and his caution. Do not pass up, even for one day, God's calls of grace and mercy to seek first his kingdom of virtue and peace. This day may be our only possibility before that final day comes. Loving Infant Jesus, your grace and mercy abounds even in the middle of trails and difficulties. Help us to seek your kingdom first and to refuse whatever would hinder us from pursuing your mode of righteousness and holiness. Fill us with the joy and hope of your eternal kingdom.
