Reflection for Friday November 28, Thirty-fourth Week in Ordinary Time; Luke 21:29-33

Gospel: Luke 21:29-33
Jesus told his disciples a parable. “Consider the fig tree and all the other trees. When their buds burst open, you see for yourselves and know that summer is now near; in the same way, when you see these things happening, know that the Kingdom of God is near. 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.”

Reflection:
A man was asked, what is your greatest fear in Life? The man replied, I fear death for I don’t know what would happen to me when I die.

We all have our own set of fears, we fear losing somebody we love, we fear losing our job. And the worst fear perhaps is the same as with the man who was asked about his greatest fear.  However why fear when Jesus is always there to soothe and take away our fears?

Many of us have so many fears for the reason that we don’t have Jesus in our lives and we don’t have a personal relationship with Him.  This is basically the reason why we have so many fears. But, why don’t we try to have discover more about Jesus through our faithful presence at Holy Mass? Why don’t we try to discover more about Jesus  by reading about His life in the bible?

Jesus in our gospel tells us that heaven and earth will pass away but His words will not pass away (Luke 21:33). Indeed, everything will pass away or we may pass away first before everything pass away. Nevertheless whatever happens and whomever passes away first we have nothing to fear for as long as we have Jesus in our lives. - Marino J. Dasmarinas
