FRIDAY 29 NOVEMBER
Luke 21, 29-33:
“Know that the kingdom of God is at hand.
That Kingdom is so near that we have it within our heart. This must fill us with joy and hope.
There are many evident signs of God’s constant presence in our lives.
Without stop and everywhere, there are those “fig trees” of which the Gospel speaks to us today, sprouting shoots full of life and hope.
You yourself are that “fig tree” that sprouts with energy showing the presence of God among us.
Whenever you give yourself, sacrifice for others, by silent and continuous service, mercy, forgiveness and peace, the Kingdom of God also springs up and you 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 come forth buds of life and hope.
