Facing the Future With Hope

The Gospel reading for the 32nd Sunday of Year C is taken from Luke 20:27 – 38. As we draw ever closer to the end of the year, this reading invites us to hold in prayer some of the big questions in life with which people across the centuries have grappled: ‘Is there life after death? If so, what does that mean? Will we be united in death with those whom we have loved in this life? Do the bonds of love experienced in this life continue beyond the grave? Are our loved ones far from us in death? How do they live on, if indeed they do?’

The following reflection by Veronica Lawson RSM is offered to enrich your prayer and reflection in the coming week: https://www.mercyworld.org/f/45074/x/570ec8c553/reflection-on-the-gospel-ot-32c-vl-171119.pdf
