The readings for today signify the change that happens in the last week of the liturgical year. They turn a little more harsh. They focus on last things. The judgement is coming. We are told to think about our lives and what they mean. And while there is the comfort of God’s love and care for each of us, there is also the warnings that are given to help us to stay focused upon God.
Homily given at Christian Brothers College High School, Town and Country, Missouri, on December 13, 2018.
