Apocalypse 22:1-7; Ps 95:1-7; Luke 21:34-36

Stay awake

Today is the last day of the Church’s Liturgical year. For the last two weeks we have had readings from Apocalypse (which I have not commented on). Today we are at the end of chapter 21 in Luke’s gospel. It is filled with images of abundance and fulfilment where the “Lord God will be their light”. Luke ends this chapter with an exhortation to “be alert at all times”, and pray for strength. We are also introduced to Advent with the psalm response being “Maranatha, Come Lord Jesus.”
