THE GOSPEL

Luke 21:25-28, 34-36

Be vigilant at all time. …

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

Alert our hearts.
 Make us aware of all the places in our world
where you are, and come, Lord Jesus,
to all the spots 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.
You have shown us the way to go.
But the road is crooked and the hills are high.
We know what you say but we cannot hear 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
wait 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 abound
in love for one another and
for every person whom
we should ever
meet.
