33rd Sunday - C (November 17, 2019)
Living the faith has its challenges. Being disciples of Jesus has its crosses.
By the time Luke wrote down this Gospel, the first generation of disciples have suffered persecution and martyrdom as Jesus had told them.
They must have remembered what he had said to them. They also experienced throughout their lives, in moments of peace and moments of suffering, his promise to remain with them.
May their faith and perseverance inspire us to remember and trust in Jesus’ promise.
