2 Kings 24:8-17; Psalm 79:1-5,8-9;
Matthew 7:21-29

Will the Kingdom come?

With this passage we come to the end of the Sermon on the Mount. Starting with the Beatitudes, and then explaining them through images and sayings, Matthew has allowed us to catch a glimpse of what the Kingdom of Heaven will look like. That is why those listening to Jesus were astounded at his teaching. This vision of a new reality, of life transformed, they saw in him. Do we really believe that this kingdom will come, as we pray daily when we recite the Our Father?
