33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time
Reading I: Daniel 12:1-3 II: Hebrews 10:11-14,18
Mark 13:24-32

24 "But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light,
25 and the stars will be falling from heaven, and the powers in the heavens will be shaken.
26 And then they will see the Son of man coming in clouds with great power and glory.
27 And then he will send out the angels, and gather his elect from the four winds, from the ends of the earth to the ends of heaven.
28 "From the fig tree learn its lesson: as soon as its branch becomes tender and puts forth its leaves, you know that summer is near.
29 So also, when you see these things taking place, you know that he is near, at the very gates.
30 Truly, I say to you, this generation will not pass away before all these things take place.
31 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.
32 "But of that day or that hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.

Interesting Details
One Main Point

Jesus will come again in full glory, proclaimed by the whole universe. No one knows when that will happen, so be watchful.

  1. Am I watchful and hopeful for the glorious coming of Jesus? How do I do that?
  2. What would be the opposite of being watchful and hopeful? Am I doing that, too?
  3. Does my preparation for Jesus' final coming include spreading the Gospel and lead to unity in love?
