Dear Friend in the Lord,

End of the World” – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus describes graphically to His disciples the “Second Coming”; the end of the world and reminds them to embrace it without fear, for their reward of Eternal Happiness will be bestowed upon them.  Ponder on, “Are we afraid of death?  Do we have deep faith and love for Jesus?”

  Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Luke 21:24-28

Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Great misery will descend on the land and retribution on this people. They will fall by the edge of the sword and be led captive to every gentile country; and Jerusalem will be trampled down by the gentiles until their time is complete.

‘There will be signs in the sun and moon and stars; on earth nations in agony, bewildered by the turmoil of the ocean and its waves; men fainting away with terror and fear at what menaces the world, for the powers of heaven will be shaken. And then they will see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. When these things begin to take place, stand erect, hold your heads high, because your liberation is near at hand.’
