Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ 

“They will see the Son of Man coming in

a cloud with power and great glory.”

1 KING lwjas0127

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 21:20-28.

Jesus said to his disciples: “When you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, know that its desolation is at hand.
Then those in Judea must flee to the mountains. Let those within the city escape from it, and let those in the countryside not enter the city,
for these days are the time of punishment when all the scriptures are fulfilled.
Woe to pregnant women and nursing mothers in those days, for a terrible calamity will come upon the earth and a wrathful judgment upon this people.
They will fall by the edge of the sword and be taken as captives to all the Gentiles; and Jerusalem will be trampled underfoot by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.
There will be signs in the sun, the moon, and the stars, and on earth nations will be in dismay, perplexed by the roaring of the sea and the waves.
People will die of fright in anticipation of what is coming upon the world, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken.
And then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.
But when these signs begin to happen, stand erect and raise your heads because your redemption is at hand.”

Commentary of the day

Origen (c.185-253),

Priest and theologian
Homilies on Joshua, 11,3-4

“Walk while you still have the light or darkness will come over you.” (Jn 12:35)

       As soon as the Lord came, it was already the end of the world. Moreover he himself said these words, situating himself in the end-time: “Reform your lives! The kingdom of heaven is at hand.” (Mt 4:17) But he kept back and delayed the day of consummation; he forbade it to appear. For God the Father, seeing that the nations’ salvation can only come from Jesus, told him: “Ask of me and I will give you the nations for an inheritance and the ends of the earth for your possession.” (Ps 2:8) Thus, until the fulfillment of this promise of the Father’s and until the churches increase with people from various nations and “the full number of gentiles enter in” so that, finally, “all Israel will be saved” (Rom 11:25): the day is lengthened, the day’s close is deferred. The “sun of justice” (Mal 3:20) never sets, but continues to pour forth the light of truth into the hearts of those who believe.  But when the number of believers has come to completion and when the degenerate and corrupt time of this last generation has taken place; when, “because of the increase of evil, the love of most will grow cold,” (Mt 24:12) …then “the days will be shortened.” (Mt 24:22) Yes, the same Lord is able to prolong the length of days when it is a time of salvation and to shorten the length of the time of tribulation and iniquity. As for ourselves, so long as we have the day and the time of light is lengthened for us, “let us live honorably as in daylight,” (Rom 13:13) and do the works of light.

Saints of the day

St. Andrew Dung-Lac

and his companions, martyrs (1745-1862) – Memorial

SAINTS ANDREW DUNG-LAC
Priest,
AND HIS COMPANIONS
(18th and 19th centuries)

        This feast day celebrates all of the martyrs of the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries (1745-1862) who shed their blood in the remote Far East, particularly in Vietnam. Many of the martyrs were priests of the Dominican order. Others belonged to the Paris Society for Foreign Missions, while still others, including Andrew Dung-Lac, were Vietnamese.

Paul Le-Bao-Tinh, a Vietnamese seminarian, wrote in a letter of 1843, shortly before his martyrdom:

“I, Paul, chained for the name of Christ, wish to tell you the tribulations in which I am immersed every day, so that you, inflamed with love for God, may also lift up your praise to God, ‘for his mercy endures forever’. This prison is truly the image of the eternal Hell: to the cruelest tortures of all types, such as fetters, iron chains and bonds, are added hate, vindictiveness, calumny, indecent words, interrogations, bad acts, unjust oaths, curses and finally difficulties and sorrow. But God, who once freed the three boys from the path of the flames, is always with me and has freed me from these tribulations and converted them into sweetness, ‘for his mercy endures forever….
Assist me with your prayers so that I may struggle according to the law, and indeed ‘fight the good fight’ and that I may be worthy to fight until the end, finishing my course happily; if we do not see each other again in this life, in the future age, nonetheless, this will be our joy, when standing before the throne of the spotless Lamb, with one voice we sing his praises, exulting in the joy of eternal victory. Amen.”
