Dear Friend in the Lord,
“Coming of the Kingdom”: In today’s Gospel, Jesus cautions the Pharisees that the time of the “Coming of God’s Kingdom” will be unexpected. Ponder on, “Do we live our faith daily with vigilance, authenticity, asking God for His Mercy for our sins, and renewing our love for Him?”
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God was to come, Jesus gave them this answer, ‘The coming of the kingdom of God does not admit of observation and there will be no one to say, “Look here! Look there!” For you must know, the kingdom of God is among you.’
He said to the disciples, ‘A time will come when you will long to see one of the days of the Son of Man and will not see it. They will say to you, “Look there!” or, “Look here!” Make no move; do not set off in pursuit; for as the lightning flashing from one part of heaven lights up the other, so will be the Son of Man when his day comes. But first he must suffer grievously and be rejected by this generation.’
