Mark 13, 24-32


Jesus said to his disciples, “But  in those days after that tribulation, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will be falling from the sky, and the powers in the heavens will be shaken. And then they will see ‘the Son of Man coming from the clouds’ with great power and glory, and then he will send out the angels and gather his elect from the four winds, from the end of the earth to the end of the sky. Learn a lesson from the fig tree. When its branch becomes tender and sprouts leaves, you know that summer is near. In the same way, when you see these things happening, know that he is near, at the gates. Amen, I say to you, this generation will not pass away until these things have taken place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away. But of that day or hour, no one knows, neither the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.”




Some years ago I saw a church leader pinning a copy of a program on the parish notice board and heard him telling another that “the people will be glad to know that there is a program for them.” I bit back the urge to say that for the most part the people were not really interested in programs as such. It is true that a good, well thought-out flexible program can be an invaluable tool for fostering growth in the parish, but when the people really will be glad to know is that God has a plan and program for them, and they are loved and cared for by God, through the ministry of the Church.

The thought of God’s loving us and having a plan for every single one of us is particularly comforting as we approach the end of a year, which certainly has brought us both sorrows and joys, a time when perhaps our feelings may even echo the words of the poet Robert Burns: “But oh! I backward cast my eye, on prospects drear! And forward, though I cannot see, I guess and fear!” in fact, today’s reading from Daniel gives us the first mention in the Bible of the resurrection, and as Christians we are reminded that each of us is always on the journey towards his or her own resurrection and final meeting with Jesus, in accordance with God’s plan for us.

We are constantly moving forward with the help of each other in the Church. Our own personal plans at each moment may not come to fruition as they meet with earthly obstacles, but we know that nothing we do as Christians is ever in vain. It is good for us always to look to God, it is good for us always to know that we are not forgotten. We can be glad to know that God has a program and a plan for us. Although, like Burns, we cannot see, there is no real need for us to guess and fear, because we know that God’s plan for our own resurrection will be fulfilled.

As members of the Church, may we all be joyful, living reminders to each other of God’s loving plan and program for us all.
