DG BookGospel: Lk 21:5-11
While some people were talking about the Temple, remarking that it was adorned with fine stonework and rich gifts, Jesus
said to them, “The days will come when there shall not be left one stone upon another of all that you now admire; all will be


torn down.” And they asked him, “Master, when will this be, and what will be the sign that this is about to take place?”Jesus
then said, “Take care not to be deceived, for many will come claiming my title and saying: ‘I am he, the Messiah; the time is at hand.’
Do not follow them. When you hear of wars and troubled times, don’t be frightened; for all this must happen first, even though the end is not
so soon.” And Jesus said, “Nations will fight each other and kingdom will oppose kingdom. There will be great earthquakes, famines and plagues;
in many places strange and terrifying signs from heaven will be seen.”

 

Reflection:

Many wonderful things have been produced
by humankind in the course of time. Some of them still
stands today as a testament to the artistic spirit that
created them. Yet they too will disappear. The Temple
of Jerusalem during Jesus’ time is a sight to behold. As
the center of the southern kingdom’s spiritual life, no
cost was spared to build it. It is the second temple after
the first one built by Solomon was destroyed in 586 BC by
Nebuchadnezzar, the King of Babylon, when he conquered
Jerusalem. Many people admire its stonework and
rich gifts. Yet Jesus correctly foretold its destruction.
Even those things dedicated to God will pass away. And
many will come to usurp the title of Jesus. People’s faith
in the original preaching of the Lord will not be firm like
the passing things of the world. They will entertain
wild claims that are not only absurd but totally off from
the message of Jesus. That’s why we have to be on guard
that our faith remains steady and strong through time.
