(Sts Joachim and Anne)
Jesus said, “… so will it be at the end of the age. The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will collect out of his Kingdom all who cause others to sin and all evildoers. They will throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be wailing and grinding of teeth. Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the Kingdom of their Father. Whoever has ears ought to hear.” Mt 13:36-43
A joy for some to hear. A disaster for others. But I think it’s mostly a warning for all of us. Have we done evil? Have we caused others to sin? Or can we truly be called righteous??? I know I’ve got a ways to go yet, in that regard, beloved. Let’s pray for each other today! Blessed are those who care enough for their brothers and sisters that they are willing to pray for their protection against temptation and all evil. Blessed are you when you put your trust in Jesus! Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of us your faithful!
