33rd OTOur liturgy today gives us two texts meant to give hope to religious people who needed it.

The first reading comes from the book of Daniel Dn 12:1-3. and from the time of the Maccabees. In the second century before Christ they fought invaders who imposed Greek culture and hardships on God’s people.

In today’s Gospel, Jesus continues offering his disciples signs to look for that will indicate that the coming of the Son of Man is near. His words and images draw upon Old Testament imagery, especially images found in the Book of Daniel.

In today’s gospel Mk 13:24-32, the evangelist Mark give his community hope from Jesus.

Both texts are in style of writing we call apocalyptic. Apocalyptic language can contain fantastic visions, often about the end of time.

We hear in today’s gospel that we should learn a lesson from the fig tree. When its branches become tender and sprout leaves, we know that summer is near. If one knows how to read the signs, one can be prepared for the end times.

These words must have given hope to Marks community which at that time would have known war and persecution These Christians needed hope to endure tyrannical emperors such as Nero and others, and the promise that Jesus would return in glory.

We faithfully wait for His return. We profess it each Sunday in our Apostles Creed. While many through the ages have tried to pin down the exact time for things to end and for Jesus to come again, we are reminded today that such will happen in God’s good time.

Our consolation and hope may be found in the lasting nature of Jesus’ words and God’s never-ending love for us. It remains for us to draw strength, courage and hope in our troubled times, and pursue the justice and wisdom of God in order to shine brightly like the stars forever
