Liturgy Live - 33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time - Perseverance Through Destruction

November 14, 2019

This week on the Podcast we continue to talk about the last things. In the first reading we talk about Prophet Malachi and how his book condemns the offensive defiled sacrifices made in the temple since the return from exile. Malachi prophesies the destruction of the evil ones. In the second reading we talk about how St Paul exhorts us to work hard even if we think it is the end times. We need to keep from the idleness that brings about sin. In the Gospel we talk about the destruction of the temple in 70AD and how we are all called to be prepared for the end times in our day as well. Jesus tells us not to be terrified and persevere in order to save our lives, our spiritual lives.
