Luke 21:25–28, 34–36

The Advent Sundays pave the way for the celebration of Jesus’ first coming at his birth in Bethlehem, his Second Coming at the end of time, and his continued coming to all who gather in his name. This Sunday’s Gospel describes that Second Coming and the fulfillment of the human race at the end of time. This Sunday is also the beginning of the new Liturgical Year.

Lucas 21, 25–28, 34–36

Los Domingos de Adviento preparan el camino para la celebración de la primera venida de Jesús en su nacimiento en Belén, su Segunda Venida al final de los tiempos y su llegada permanente a todos los que se reúnan en su nombre. El Evangelio de este domingo describe la Segunda Venida y la realización del género humano al final de los tiempos. Este domingo es también el comienzo del nuevo Año litúrgico.
