Sunday Reflection

We can listen to Jesus’ prophecy today and feel that it is being fulfilled even in our own time. The amount of unrest among people, disasters around the world, and even this week we have seen the terrible destruction of flood waters in places very close to us. Nature itself feels very frightening. The Christian message of ‘love your neighbour as yourself’, stands out in complete contrast to what is happening here and around the world. We must always remember that the little we can do is never in vain.
Today’s Gospel warns us about becoming too fixated on temporary human institutions, perhaps with the implication that we should attend to the poor and needy in our communities. God remains present in our world and in our lives even when it feels like the world is closing in on us.
