Readings for today’s Mass
In our Gospel reading, Jesus warns that living a life not ordered towards him and his commandments will result in being left in destruction, fire and brimstone and loneliness. What is Jesus talking about here? As we begin to wind down the Church year and look towards the season of Advent, a season of waiting, we must remember that Advent is not ONLY about waiting and remembering Christs coming to Earth as a baby but waiting for Christ to come again, the second coming, also known as the Last Judgement. At his second coming those who turned away from him and tried to find happiness in the things of this world will not be able to experience true and complete happiness with him for all eternity. Fear not! If we return to our first reading we find the solution for how not only to find happiness in this life, but for all time. It is simple, it is to love. Love, not only of Christ, but love of neighbor. It is through this love that we can work to build the Kingdom here and now and prepare our hearts to be with Christ in paradise forever.
