May They Rest in Peace


St. Luke was aware of the danger to the faithful posed by impostors announcing the imminent end of the world. He goes to some length to dismantle the falsehoods of such impostors and urges the early Christians to persevere in faith at all times. The followers of Christ are called to endure patiently all that life presents, knowing that the up-building of The Kingdom of God will meet with opposition.

Malachi 3:19-20

The day of the Lord came at the Incarnation - it will come again when Jesus returns. The grace of Jesus’ coming will be a judgement on the world and on all mankind.

2 Thessalonians 3:7-12

We are not to await the return of Christ in anxiety or idleness  but to be conscientious in our responsibilities and duties to one another and society.

Luke 21:5-19

Catastrophic events are not to be interpreted too quickly as signs that the world is ending. Christians must know that the persecutions they endure on account of The Lord  are rejections of him also. The time of the Church is not a time of calculation  and prediction of the end time but of perseverance in faith.

Readings for Mass

Malachi 3:19-20

For you the sun of righteousness will shine out. The day is coming now, burning like a furnace; and all the arrogant and the evil-doers will be like stubble. The day that is coming is going to burn them up, says the Lord of Hosts, leaving them neither root nor stalk. But for you who fear my name, the sun of righteousness will shine out with healing in its rays.

2 Thessalonians 3:7-12

Do not let anyone have food if he refuses to work. You know how you are supposed to imitate us: now we were not idle when we were with you, nor did we ever have our meals at anyone’s table without paying for them; no, we worked night and day, slaving and straining, so as not to be a burden on any of you. This was not because we had no right to be, but in order to make ourselves an example for you to follow. We gave you a rule when we were with you: do not let anyone have any food if he refuses to do any work. Now we hear that there are some of you who are living in idleness, doing no work themselves but interfering with everyone else’s. In the Lord Jesus Christ, we order and call on people of this kind to go on quietly working and earning the food that they eat.

Luke 21:5-19

The destruction of the Temple foretold. When some were talking about the Temple, remarking how it was adorned with fine stonework and votive offerings, Jesus said, ‘All these things you are staring at now – the time will come when not a single stone will be left on another: everything will be destroyed.’ And they put to him this question: ‘Master,’ they said ‘when will this happen, then, and what sign will there be that this is about to take place?’ ‘Take care not to be deceived,’ he said ‘because many will come using my name and saying, “I am he” and, “The time is near at hand.” Refuse to join them. And when you hear of wars and revolutions, do not be frightened, for this is something that must happen but the end is not so soon.’ Then he said to them, ‘Nation will fight against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be great earthquakes and plagues and famines here and there; there will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven. ‘But before all this happens, men will seize you and persecute you; they will hand you over to the synagogues and to imprisonment, and bring you before kings and governors because of my name – and that will be your opportunity to bear witness. Keep this carefully in mind: you are not to prepare your defence, because I myself shall give you an eloquence and a wisdom that none of your opponents will be able to resist or contradict. You will be betrayed even by parents and brothers, relations and friends; and some of you will be put to death. You will be hated by all men on account of my name, but not a hair of your head will be lost. Your endurance will win you your lives.’
