DG Book

Gospel: Luke 17:20-25
The Pharisees asked Jesus when the kingdom of God was to come. He answered,
“The kingdom of God is not like something you can observe, and say of it, ‘Look,
 here it is!’ or ‘See, there it is!’ for the kingdom of God is within you.”

And Jesus said to his disciples, “The time is at hand, when you will long to see one of the glorious
days of the Son of Man, but you will not see it. Then people will tell you, ‘Look there! Look here!’
Do not go with them, do not follow them. As lightning flashes from one end of the sky to the other,
so will it be with the Son of Man; but first he must suffer many things, and be rejected by this
generation.

Reflect:

On December 31, 2016, at an inter-religious gathering in the United States, Valerie Kaur, a social
activist, made a powerful speech. Reflecting on the troubled times the US was going through then,
she said: “The mother in me asks: ‘What if? What if this darkness is not the darkness of the tomb,
but the darkness of the womb? What if we are not a dead country but a country that is waiting to
be born? What if our story is one of long labor?’ And what does the midwife tell you to do when
you are in labor? ‘Breathe and Push’.” The darkness over the world has only worsened since
then. So what should we do? We must continue to breathe and push, so that the baby that is
within us – the Kingdom – will be born. If we don’t breathe, we die; if we do not push, the
Kingdom dies within us.
