Thirty-Third Sunday in Ordinary Time - 18 November 2018
In today’s Gospel we get a very vivid picture of how the end of the world might break in upon us. It’s clear that Mark thought it was going to happen in the lifetime of some of his hearers. It didn’t, and many generations later we’re still waiting. This is not to say that the reign of God doesn’t regularly break in upon us. Wladyslaw’s playing shows how music can do it. We believe that every day more good is done in the world than evil; else this world would destroy itself. And we hold that the source of all love is Christ. So, every time we are kind rather than cruel, patient rather than intolerant, generous rather than selfish, beautiful rather than ugly, the reign of God bursts into our lives.
