33rd SUNDAY -C- November 17, 2019

Malachi 3: 19-20; Psalm 98; 2 Thessalonians 3: 7-12; Luke 21: 5-19

By: Jude Siciliano, OP

 

Mini reflections on the Sunday scripture readings designed for persons on the run. "Faith Book" is also brief enough to be posted in the Sunday parish bulletins people take home.

 

From today’s reading from the Prophet Malachi:

 

Lo, the day is coming, blazing like an oven,

When all the proud and all evildoers will be stubble....

But for you who fear my name, there will arise

Sun of justice with its healing rays.

 

Reflection:

 

While evil doers may prosper for a while, the faithful are strengthened by Malachi’s vision of God’s coming justice. With hope in that vision we do not give in to the despair and pessimism that might cause us to give up on ourselves, our world, and even our incomplete and wounded church. We especially do not give up on God.

 

So, we ask ourselves:

 

What gets us most discouraged about our world today? About our own lives?

What subtle signs of hope give us courage and the desire to persevere?
