DG BookGospel: Lk 17:26-37
As it was in the days of Noah, so will it be on the day the Son of Man comes. Then people ate and drank; they took husbands
and wives. But on the day Noah entered the ark, the flood came and destroyed them all. Just as it was in the days of Lot: people ate


and drank, they bought and sold, planted and built. But on the day Lot left Sodom, God made fire and sulfur rain down from
heaven which destroyed them all. So will it be on the day the Son of Man is revealed. On that day, if you are on the rooftop, don’t go down into the
house to get your belongings, and if you happen to be in the fields, do not turn back. Remember Lot’s wife. Whoever tries to save his life will lose
himself, but whoever gives his life will be born again. I tell you, though two men are sharing the same bed, it may be that one will be taken
and the other left. Though two women are grinding corn together, one may be taken and the other left.” Then they asked Jesus, “Where will this take
place, Lord?” And he answered, “Where the body is, there too, will the vultures gather.”

 

Reflection

The gospel today assures us that
the end time will come. Although no one knows
the time or the hour, still it will come. As follower
of Jesus, are we supposed to fear the inevitable? Let
us remember that the end of time is not only about
devastation. Rather, it is more about salvation.
What will be destroyed are the human-made world
order that do not conform with God’s will. Thus,
these occurrences should be welcomed with joy
because they signal that the deliverance of the just
is right around the corner. But if we have merely been
going with the flow of the world, our gospel text
today cautions us; we could end up destroyed instead
of being saved. Therefore, we have to do something
about how we live. We must be prepared for what
is to come.
