SUNDAY’S GOSPEL—November 13, 2022 – 33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time

Luke 21:5–19

Jews connected the very spirit of their faith to the Temple with its incense-filled, prayerful inner courts and its shaded outer courts where people met and talked. They celebrated their holy days at the Temple; it was the center of their faith community. But Jesus’ assessment of the times in this Sunday’s Gospel proved accurate. The Jews’ rebellion against Roman occupation that began in A.D. 66 ended in the destruction of the Temple in A.D. 70 by the Roman forces. When Jesus predicts the destruction of the Temple to his disciples in Sunday’s Gospel, they are shocked. Jesus both scares and assures his listeners, past and present. He explains that wars, disasters, and persecutions will continue. He assures us that we can endure these and other troubles. He promises to put words in our mouths so no one can put us down. He promises to be with us always.

See The Gospel at Home (English and Spanish) for suggested family activities and discussion starters related to this Sunday’s Gospel.
