*JMJ* Today's scripture reading. The 33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time; Mk 13:24-32 But in those days after that tribulation the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will be falling from the sky, and the powers in the heavens will be shaken. And then they will see 'the Son of Man coming in the clouds' with great power and glory, and then he will send out the angels and gather [his] elect from the four winds, from the end of the earth to the end of the sky. Learn a lesson from the fig tree. When its branch be- comes tender and sprouts leaves, you know that summer is near. In the same way, when you see these things happening, know that he is near, at the gates. Amen, I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things have taken place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away. But of that day or hour, no one knows, neither the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. I don't know about you all, but whenever I hear or read from the bible of the Lord's second coming, I get all giddy inside. Especially for all the people who do not believe. Because they are going to get such a rude, rude awakening. They won't be able to miss the day when, from out of the clouds comes the Almighty Jesus Christ! Because we (Christ's follower's) get laughed at. But also I get giddy about the Lord's second coming because all of the evil will be brought to light! Amen. All of our sins will be there for the world to see. All the abuses to children. All of the rapes. All of the murders. All of the souls who starved to death. All of the homeless looking in dumpsters for food. We will also see the babies who were aborted, standing behind their Lord! Amen!! How will we ever be able to look those babies in the eyes after are gaze looks passed the Lord's shoulders. And then standing next to them I'm sure will be the Mother of God. We will be lamenting of the cruelties that we, all people have done. All the evil that was done in the dark will be brought to light for the world to see. And there will be no escaping. For all of the injustices that were done to people, there will be justice. But most importantly is all of the injustice done to our Lord Jesus Christ. He will bring forth his rightly deserved justice. For he is King of heaven. All of the people who never believed in Him. Never prayed to Him. Never wanted to sacrifice anything for Him. People who never went to church. Not once did they visit the Lord before blessed sacrament. Never recited to Holy Rosary but treated it as some good luck charm. Never read there bibles to get to know God. The injustices that are done to him go on and on and will till the end of time. I could not possibly write them all done. Isn't that amazing though, how this will all be brought up and the end of time. It makes you wonder just how long our last judgement is going to be. Hours, days, months, yikes! As we know, the Lord's time is a little different then ours. =) At an intersection on my way to church, there has been no left turns allowed due to construction. Well, I have been cutting through a grocery store parking lot to avoid that intersection. This time I took the alley from behind the grocery store to avoid the parking lot and we seen some old man, looking through the garbage dumpster. He had a decent truck and the fellow looked clean. But maybe he lost his job and was hungry. I don't know. On the way home from church, again I took the ally shortcut form behind the grocery store. My son told me that on the way to church when I did the ally shortcut,that there was a sign that said do not enter, one way. I just simply said. "Oh I didn't see that. (I really didn't. It was God intervening.) I told my children, "I'm sure God would forgive me. Because on the way to church, I seen that man. If I hadn't seen him, I wouldn't have been able to offer up my Holy Communion for him." God seen that I needed to pray for that man. And I did. I would never let an opportunity pass me by like that when I see people in need of my prayers. I even told my children as we were entering the church to pray for that man. At the end of time, I do believe, that we are going to be faced with people who needed our prayers but let an opportunity pass them by. I'm by know means tooting my own horn. I'm just saying that my family and God were the only ones who probably seen that old man. There are so many sad instances in this world where there are horrific situations that only the Lord sees. But at the end of time, those terrible tragedies will be brought to full light for all the world to see. Where is it in Revelation? I found it!..........(Thank you Jesus!) Revelation 1:7...... Behold, he is coming amid the clouds, and every eye will see him, even those who pierced him. All the peoples of the earth will lament him. Yes. Amen. If that doesn't make the hair on the back of your neck stand up! It sure does mine! Don't ever do anything that you would not want the world to see. But also, have a pure heart to. I don't know if I want to still be alive for the Lord's second coming. But I would have to believe, that the souls in heaven will probably be trembling when God the father tells Jesus our Lord......it is time.
