Malachi 3:19-20a; 2 Thessalonians 3:7-12; Luke 21:5-19. In the first reading, Malachi proclaims the coming judgment where the proud and evildoers will face destruction, while those who fear the Lord will be healed. In the second reading, Paul reminds believers to behave in an orderly way. In the Gospel, Jesus describes events that involve the persecution and suffering of believers, and warns them not to be taken in by false prophets or worldly signs.

 

Domenica 33A Del Tempo Ordinario
 
I profeti annunciano che si sarà la fine di questo mondo. Anche Gesù, come profeta si colloca alla fine della storia e mette davanti ai nostri occhi le difficoltà che non ci devono disarmare. Il bene alla fine trionferà e così “cieli nuovi e terra nuovi” sorgeranno.

 

常年期第三十三主日

上主日的福音中提到人死後復活,今天提到的仍是有關這方面的問題,以「上主的日子」 —— 世界末日為標題。耶穌說到那時有許多徵兆,但並不是末日立刻就到,不必驚慌,但我們可以明白這是天主仁慈地提醒我們,要時刻警醒。

耶穌又提到許多人會假冒祂的名,散佈邪說,令人迷惑,因此我們要認識教會的道理,要堅定信德,不要受騙。耶穌又預告:戰爭、叛亂、天災、飢荒將要出現,還有人身的迫害,這一切聽來可怕,其實未嘗不是天主給我們機會,要我們改善自己,幫助有需要的人。我們也許不致因信仰而受到肉身的迫害,但每天在日常生活中為基督作見證有時也會遭受困難,被人反對嘲笑,但我們不要怕,因為耶穌答應我們,祂會保護我們,保證我們不會失落,祇要我們堅忍到底。

From Fr. Gael: This is an apocalyptic reading for the coming end of the liturgical year. Actually, the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem had already taken place when this Gospel was written. So, when Luke puts in Jesus’ words about the destruction of the Temple of Jerusalem, credibility is assumed. This is a time when the early followers of Jesus were trying to figure out where they fit in. They’re not welcome by the Jewish culture of Jerusalem. The Temple is gone. Who are they? They gradually work that out in the active following of Jesus Christ through the first Christian communities. In our secular world, you might say we are working out how we can give witness to the gospel of Jesus Christ. We would do well to ask the intercession of the first followers of Christ of that critical time to help us reaffirm our identity today as followers of Christ. The world needs us as much today as it needed them in their time. What bonds us together is the person of Jesus Christ. Jesus, yesterday, today and always. Amen. –Fr. Gael Sullivan, SDB

Saints Peter and Paul School Scholarship Fund: With San Francisco’s cost of living, lack of funds may prevent children from receiving a Catholic Education. The Salesians began by educating the children of the poor, and we are not about to exclude those who cannot make the total fee. But, like Don Bosco before us, we need help. Are there parishioners and/or friends who might consider contributing to the sponsorship of a student who might be otherwise forced to leave?

Christ the King, End of the Liturgical Year: Next Sunday we celebrate the Feast of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe, and with it, the end of the Liturgical Year. “The Liturgical Year is the way Mother Church places before us the main events and teachings in the life of Jesus. When we remember the events and stories in the life of Jesus, we make them as real to us as they were to those who first experienced them. We bring past events into the now.” Each of the three Liturgical Years uses one of the Synoptic Gospels: Matthew, Mark, & Luke. We will conclude Year C (Luke) next week, and, begin Year A (Matthew) on December 1, the First Sunday of Advent. Saints Luke and Matthew, pray for us!
