Sunday Reflection

Sunday Reflection from Father Anthony

Sunday November 18th, 2018 ~ 33rd Sunday in Ordinary time


Finally, we have come to the end of this season of Ordinary Time and liturgical year for that matter! It is a moment when we look back with joy, as well as, keep hopeful for the next journey of our faith.

There are many stories told about the end of the world! They have been told before and hopefully will be told even in the future. The truth about these stories is very uncertain, no wonder they have been kept to be just stories of people's imagination. But they could cause fear among us! Yet, as men and women of faith, we take the words of Jesus seriously when he says, "But of that day or hour, no one knows, neither the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father." It is certain that one day Jesus will come again to judge the living and the dead. What the church is teaching us is that we need to be prepared fully, all the time, so we can receive him with joy whenever he comes! The challenges and calamities, accidents and disasters we experience today should be reminders to us that life on earth is short, so we need to always be well prepared. But, because we have faith, we should never worry too much. Who knew we could make it to this Sunday? No one! Let us, therefore, place our trust in God who knows our destiny and in everything we do, may we have faith in God!

Happy Sunday!
