33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time Year B
Any day is a great day when we are alive to complain about it. Today in the 33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time, we are at the end of the Church Year. In these times, we see the Church focusing on the end times. One thing I really appreciate is the people who “know” the end of the world. I love them and am thankful for them because Jesus tells us that no one knows the end of the world, not even He or the angels know that time, only the Father. So, whenever someone has predicted the end of the world, I can know with certainty that it won’t happen at that time. That is why I am thankful for the ones that “know”. All these manifestations that Jesus talked about in today’s Gospel happened before the final destruction of Jerusalem. The Christians saw the signs and fled before the Romans destroyed Jerusalem and the temple, which was their world, and not one of them died because they listened to God. I am not saying the world is not going to end, only that no one knows when.
