FIRST READING

“Fallen is Babylon the great! “
A reading from the Book of Revelation (Revelation 18: 1-2.21-23; 19:1-3.9a)

I, John, saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority; and the earth was made bright with his splendour. And he called out with a mighty voice, “Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! It has become a dwelling place of demons, a haunt of every foul spirit, a haunt of every foul and hateful bird.” Then a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, saying, “So shall Babylon the great city be thrown down with violence, and shall be found no more; and the sound of harpists and minstrels, of flute players and trumpeters, shall be heard in you no more; and a craftsman of any craft shall be found in you no more; and the sound of the millstone shall be heard in you no more; and the light of a lamp shall shine in you no more; and the voice of bridegroom and bride shall be heard in you no more; for your merchants were the great men of the earth, and all nations were deceived by your sorcery.” After this I heard what seemed to be the mighty voice of a great multitude in heaven, crying, “Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and power belong to our God, for his judgements are true and just; he has judged the great harlot who corrupted the earth with her fornication, and he has avenged on her the blood of his servants.” Once more they cried, “Hallelujah! The smoke from her goes up for ever and ever.” And the angel said to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.”

The word of the Lord.



RESPONSORIAL PSALM Ps 100:1-2.3.4.5 (R. Revelation 19:9a)

R/. Blessed are those who are invited
to the marriage supper of the Lamb.


Cry out with joy to the Lord, all the earth.
Serve the Lord with gladness.
Come before him, singing for joy. R.

Know that he, the Lord, is God.
He made us; we belong to him.
We are his people, the sheep of his flock. R.

Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with songs of praise.
Give thanks to him, and bless his name. R.

Indeed, how good is the Lord,
eternal his merciful love.
He is faithful from age to age. R.



ALLELUIA Luke 21:28

Alleluia. Look up and raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing near. Alleluia.




GOSPEL

“Jerusalem will be trodden down by the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.”
A reading from the holy Gospel according to Luke (Luke 21:20-28)

At that time: Jesus said to his disciples, “When you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation has come near. Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, and let those who are inside the city depart, and let not those who are out in the country enter it; for these are days of vengeance, to fulfil all that is written. Alas for those who are with child and for those who are nursing in those days! For great distress shall be upon the earth and wrath upon this people; they will fall by the edge of the sword, and be led captive among all nations; and Jerusalem will be trodden down by the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled. “And there will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and upon the earth distress of nations in perplexity at the roaring of the sea and the waves, men fainting with fear and with foreboding of what is coming on the world; for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. And then they will see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. Now when these things begin to take place, look up and raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.”

The Gospel of the Lord.



Today's Reflection


It is consoling for the true followers of Christ that Babylon which symbolizes evil and forces opposed to God and his Christ will be destroyed. The children of eternal life will join their voices with those of the angels praising God. Jesus will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead. The elect will have nothing to fear. They are to share in the glory of the lamb. When the Lord appears the elect will have nothing to fear. They are to stand erect and hold their hands high because their liberating is near at hand.





Personal Devotional

Let us have confidence, then; and approach God's throne, where there is grace. There we will receive mercy and find grace to help us just when we need it.....Hebrews 4:16

- Pray for mercy for the times you have treasured earthly possessions at the expense of the kingdom.

- Pray for the spirit of detachment from created things.

- Pray for the grace to fix your mind on treasures above.

- Surrender all things to God; tell God to help you to let go of earthly treasure.


Let Us Pray

O Christ Jesus, when all is darkness, and we feel our weakness and helplessness, give us to have perfect trust in your protecting love and strengthening power, so that nothing may frighten or worry us, for, living close to you, we shall see your hand, your purpose, your will through all things.
