The Bible: The Power of Rebirth

The Destruction of the Temple Foretold

Reflection on the Gospel of the Tuesday
Of The Thirty-Fourth Week In Ordinary Time

 

Luke 21:5-11

The Jewish people took great pride in three things: Law, Jerusalem and the Temple. When the last two were destroyed by the Romans in 70AD, the people were completely shattered and they must have thought it was the end of the world. In the years 2019-21 most of us were gripped by the terror of Covid-19 pandemic. The world over, people were overwhelmed by fear, nervousness and uncertainty for their own lives and those of their loved ones in the midst of millions being dead. We lived through the most challenging time in human history.

Now just imagine going through this phase with no faith in God. Such a hopeless situation it would have been. In fact, if we dig deep within, all of us will have a hope-filled story of our own to share of the Covid-19 episode.

Thus, today’s Gospel assures us that no matter what we go through in our personal life, human/natural calamities, it should not shake our peace and security, if our lives are submitted to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. We ought to live by our Christian hope, that God is with us in life and in death.
