Joel 1:13-15, 2:1-2; Psalm 9:1-6; Luke 11:15-26
Pope St John XXIII (OM)
The day of the Lord is coming
The Old Testament prophet Joel warned the people that “the day of the Lord is coming, yes it is near”. In his public ministry of teaching, healing and casting out devils, Jesus proclaimed that the day of the Lord had come: that he is stronger than Beelzebul because he is the “finger” of God. Jesus embodies the kingdom of God present among us.
Renew your faith in Jesus who reveals God’s kingdom present among us.
