"But of that day or hour, no one knows."

We now move close to the end of the Liturgical Year and the Solemnity of Christ the King on November 25. As a prelude to this celebration, the Gospel for Sunday (Mark 13:24-32) speaks about the “second coming.” The passage uses apocalyptic imagery, which uncovers some deep and important messages to help us understand and prepare for this glorious event: “The Son of Man coming in the clouds with great power and glory.” Our Discussion Questions will guide your Sunday Bible Study with family, friends and church groups.

This Gospel story is taken from the most difficult chapter of Mark's Gospel (13:24-32) and is often interpreted as announcing the end of the world. Mark 13 is often called the "little apocalypse." Like Daniel 7-12 and the Book of Revelation, it focuses on a world of persecution. When we take the chapter as a whole, we will be able to see that we are dealing with the theme of meaning rather than chronology.

You will find all of the Sunday homilies we have compiled for you this week at this link. You can also read our full coverage of this week's Catholic world by clicking here. We will be back next week with our regular edition of your Catholic Living Today.

Another eventful week in our Catholic World. Have a great and blessed new week.

Keep the Faith. Peace.
