Readings for the Week
November 17 - 24, 2019
Reading for Sunday, November 17:

Mal 3:19-20a: The time of judgment is coming.  For the faithful, it will be a day of glory.

2 Thes 3:7-12:  We must all work together and cooperate with one another.  No one can sit back and enjoy the fruits of anotherís labor.

Lk 21:5-19:  Nothing in this world will last forever and we can be sure of trials and tribulations.  But if we put our trust and hope in Christ, we will find life.

Todayís Message:  Jesus teaches that His disciples will be persecuted as a necessary prelude to the parousia.  Through their perseverance, they will emerge victorious when the Lord comes again.  As we await the Day, let us conscientiously fulfill our Christian obligations.
