The Temple

There are two temples to consider in today's Gospel.

One is the Jeusalem temple and the other of which Jesus is the cornerstoe.

As Jesus approaches the Jerusalem temple, he is aware of the danger that shadows his own bodily temple.High dramas in films end with THE END on the screen. So it is appropriae that at the end of he church;s liturgical year the readings are about endings.

Advent will shift to beginnigs.

So we are reminded that our time is on loan and is fleeting.

November itself reminds of passing time.

And so we pray:

O Lord,

make me aware that time is moving,

and there is only so much time to do good.

Help me to take notice

and to sieze the moment.
