Sunday Sermon, November 13 -- The Destruction of Jerusalem and the End of the World

Sunday Sermon, 33rd Sunday of Ordinary Time.

In the year AD 66, St Simeon, the second bishop of Jerusalem, led the Christians out of the city of Jerusalem before the soon-to-be emperor Titus destroyed the city in 70 AD. Yet, God was merciful, for the Christians returned to perform works of charity after Titus left the city in ruins.

Jesus doesn't want us to be afraid of the day of Judgment. His second coming isn't a threat, it's a promise. If we are afraid of the Lord's return, either we need to recall his love or recognize that it is our lowliness and our misery call upon our mercy.
