THE GOSPEL

Luke 21:25-28, 34-36

Be vigilant at all times.

 Jesus.

You came into our world with all its sorrows.
Keep us watchful for your presence
in the midst of our struggles.
Tell us again that your
love will triumph. 

Make us vigilant. Put our hearts on alert.
Let us be aware of all the places
 in our world where
you are.

In all beauty.

Anywhere there is love.

In helping hands reaching out.

Come,
Lord Jesus, to all the dwellings
in our lives where
you are not
yet.


THE FIRST READING

Jeremiah 33:14-16

The days are coming, says the Lord,
when I will fulfill the promise.

We have
seen the root of Jesse.
Which has shown us the way to go.
But the road is crooked and the hills are high.

We can know what you say but we cannot hear very well
over the moans of the oppressed peoples,
the cries of the hungry children,
and the din of all
our wars.

As Judah yearned for
safety, so do we
yearn for you,
O Lord.

Come
 again with promises.

We long for healing and justice


THE SECOND READING

1 Thessalonians 3:12-4:2

May the Lord make you increase and abound
in love for one another and for all.

Stretch us,
Lord.

We want to overflow
with love for one another and
for every person whom
we should ever
meet.

 We want to be one family that shares
 our earth, our riches, and all
our dreams together.
