LISTEN: Reflection for the 33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time — Year C

This Sunday’s gospel is an interesting combination of despair and hope; of endings and beginnings. It promises new beginnings – the rise of the Son of Righteousness for those who “fear my name” as God says through the Prophet Malachi.

The Psalmist reminds us that God is just and fair. That even in the midst of those who seem to benefit from greed and injustice, they too will face justice.

The duty of the believer is to stay steadfast. Without promising an easy ride, Jesus promises that our endurance through all this will not be in vain. “By your endurance, you will gain your lives”.
