DG Book

Gospel: Luke 17:26-37
As it was in the days of Noah, so will it be on the day the Son of Man comes. In those
days people ate and drank and got married; but on the day Noah entered the ark, the
flood came and destroyed them all. So it was in the days of Lot: people ate and drank,

and bought and sold, and 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 it, but whoever gives his life will be born again. I tell you, though two men are sharing the same
bed, it might happen that one will be taken, and the other left; though two women are grinding meal
together, one might 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.”

Reflect:

“Being prepared” is a theme that keeps recurring in the liturgy of the word, as we approach the
end of the liturgical year. Jesus speaks about the suddenness of the coming of the Son of Man,
be it collectively for a group or individually. The best way to remain prepared is to ensure that we
walk, on a daily basis, according to God’s commandments, as John tells us today. What is the
commandment? That we walk in love. But then, what is love? There are so many forms of love
that we are confused. The love we must grow into is the love that the Scriptures speak of: love
for God and our brothers and sisters; a love that results when we are able to die to ourselves
and make the lives of others a priority; a love made visible in Jesus Christ.
