FRIDAY 27th NOVEMBER 2020
Luke 21, 29-33:
“Know that the kingdom of God is near at hand”.
So close is that Kingdom that we have it within our hearts.
This should fill us with joy and hope.
There are many obvious signs of God’s constant presence in our lives.
All over the place, there are those “fig trees” that the Gospel tells us about today, sprouting full of life and hope.
You yourself are that “fig tree” that sprouts robustly showing God’s presence among us.
Whenever you give yourself, sacrifice for others, silent and continuous service, mercy, forgiveness and peace, the Kingdom of God will also spring up and you will make his presence possible in you and in others.
Learn to recognize his presence in you and in those around you.
Sow and cultivate your faith with joy and love so that out of your heart will come forth life and hope.
