33rd Sunday Ordinary Time – End Times at the Thanksgiving Table…
This year I have heard many more expressions of worry about conflict at the Thanksgiving table. Certainly it’s been there in the past, but we are a nation so palpably divided, a church so notably wounded, that it could be that anything someone says one way or another might provoke a major outbreak of shouting and name-calling.
The End Times look like this. Given the above, inasmuch as it describes the reality of many of us, the End Times would mark the healing of everything in me/us that causes division from God, self, and others. What could bring us to that point?
Well, that’s what Christ the King and Advent are about. Christmas, too.
Happy Thanksgiving. May charity prevail!
