Readings for today’s Mass
What does all this rambling about the change of seasons have to do with today’s Scripture passages? I think that the disciples must have been feeling somewhat like we were. They were waiting for something. Perhaps they didn’t even know what it was they were waiting for or they were confused about just exactly what it was they needed.
Jesus paints such a beautiful and comforting picture. He tells them to not be troubled, they know him, which means they know God. Jesus says to them that better things are coming; he will take care of them. The disciples were in a season of waiting and Jesus was there to tell them he was with them in this season and would be with them in the next.
What does your season of life look like right now? Are you in a season of waiting? Waiting to find a future spouse or vocation to religious life? Waiting for a child to enter your family? Waiting to find meaningful employment? Maybe just waiting to get through the end of the semester. Whatever season of life you are in right now know one thing for sure, Christ is with you and it is part of his plan, yes even the hard parts. For it is in the struggles that we appreciate the victory. When the snow finally melts and the flowers begin to poke their heads through the sleeping earth we can rejoice that winter is over and a new season has begun.
