“The reign of God is at hand.” How can that be true, having been said thousands of years ago? Doesn’t “at hand” mean soon? What Mark was actually trying to tell us is that Jesus was the beginning of God’s reign and the fulfillment of His promise to his people. Mark doesn’t focus much on Jesus’ teaching, but on his person, his life, his example. His words in this gospel are simple, “Come follow me.”
Before Advent, St. Vincent’s parish studied on the CST principles of Solidarity, the Dignity of Work & the Rights of Workers, and the Option for the Poor and Vulnerable. About the Call to Family, Community and Participation, parishioner James Casey writes: We learn values at the feet of those who raise us. They provide the love and guidance which allow us to grow into confident, responsible adults. They teach us to put the needs of others before our own needs. We learn the importance of forgiving and the importance of accepting forgiveness. We learn that we will survive our mistakes. We learn that love is more important than wealth and status. As adults, it is our duty to pass on these values to the next generation. Read the rest of Jim’s words by clicking here.
