November 10th, 2013 - THIRTY-SECOND SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
As we come close to the end of the Church’s liturgical year the readings become more eschatological or about the “endtimes”. The
main theme of today’s readings is the reality of life after death and the relationship between our lives on earth and the life of glory
(or punishment) that will follow. The readings invite us to consider the true meaning of the resurrection in our lives. The first
reading, points out that true faith in the resurrection breaks the hold of fear over us because faith is always inconsistent with fear.
The second reading provides encouragement to carry on with confidence in the Lord’s faithfulness. In the gospel, Jesus assures us
of the reality of the life to come and that heavenly life with God in glory is totally different from earthly life. What role will the
faith in the resurrection play in our lives? How are my daily lives preparation for the return of Jesus?
