Jeremiah 33:14-16; Ps 25:4-5, 8-10, 14; 1 Thessalonians 3:12–4:2; Lk 21:25-28, 34-36
We have finished another church year. Each liturgical year we think about some aspect of God’s loving plan for us, his creation. We have some sense of humanity’s disobedience to God’s plan as revealed to us in the Bible. We also have some sense of humanity’s continued disobedience today on earth with the daily not-so-good news.
The church provides us with a glimpse of what God’s plan is for us. We see God, our creator and father, sending his Son to earth in the person of Jesus Christ. Jesus, in his public life, speaks to us about our Father’s plan. He doesn’t just speak about it but shows us how to live it by loving and caring for one another.
