9th Sunday After Pentecost 2013
During the announcements today we learn what things are necessary for the upcoming Confirmations. This Mass is a warning so we are ready when Our Lord returns for the Final Judgment. Jerusalem and people in general live lives of distraction which deflects their attention from the important things in life and this renders them oblivious to Christ on the day of His visitation. If we heed the words of the Epistle and Gospel we will have a clear conscience and receive Jesus as we should.
