Friday of the Last Week in Kingdomtide
Recall the mountains in this Gospel—the setting for the Beatitudes in “The Sermon on the Mount,” Mount Tabor where the Transfiguration of Jesus took place, Mount Calvary, and finally this mountain where your King bids farewell and gives “The Great Commission.”
On this last week of another year of grace, place yourself among those first disciples who heard the commission. Feel yourself a part of the Church, bonded together in such a way that Christ lives in you and works through you because of the connections you have with the members of Christ’s body.
Take the Great Commission personally. How are you living it? What changes in your life need to take place? Advent begins in two days: a new year of grace is about to rush in for you!
Fridays are dedicated to the Gospels—this year, St. Matthew.
