Daily Gospel Reflection – Thirty-third Sunday in Ordinary Time 

Friends, there is something dark, threatening, and a little bit dire about the Gospel reading today, but through it, we see that death is not the final word. We’ve listened to the noise of the world for long enough, and now we need a new spiritual guide to lead us out of our complacency: Jesus. 

What Is the Apocalypse? — Bishop Barron’s Sunday Sermon 


November 14, 2021 
Thirty-third Sunday in Ordinary Time 
Gospel: Mk 13:24-32 

Jesus said to his disciples: "In those days after that tribulation the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will be falling from the sky, and the powers in the heavens will be shaken. "And then they will see 'the Son of Man coming in the clouds' with great power and glory, and then he will send out the angels and gather his elect from the four winds, from the end of the earth to the end of the sky. "Learn a lesson from the fig tree. When its branch becomes tender and sprouts leaves, you know that summer is near. In the same way, when you see these things happening, know that he is near, at the gates. Amen, I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things have taken place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away. "But of that day or hour, no one knows, neither the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father."

Friends, our Gospel for today features apocalyptic musings. Recall that “apocalypse” means unveiling, a revelation. And Jesus uses, once again, the language from the seventh chapter of the prophet Daniel: “The powers in the heavens will be shaken. And then they will see ‘the Son of Man coming in the clouds’ with great power and glory.” 

Daniel spoke of a succession of four kingdoms, which would be followed by the arrival of God’s definitive kingdom. This is the fulfillment of Nathan’s prophecy that a son of David would reign forever. 

I realize how strange all of this can sound, but there is a spiritual point of enormous significance behind all of it. We should not trust in any of the powers of the world to give us security and peace. Such peace will come only with the arrival of God’s kingdom. 

What you should look to is the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven. Now, is this meant in an ultimate sense? Yes, the Second Coming signals the end of the world as we know it. But the Son of Man is coming on the clouds of heaven even now, in the life of the Church.
