Theme: Witnessing to the light 

In today's liturgy, we hear John the Baptist say to us: There stands one among you whom you know not. The one he speaks of is Christ our saviour. Christ is the unseen guest at our banquet. More than that,  he is the host who welcomes us to his banquet given by the Father. We are called to draw close to him and renew our faith in His presence with us. He works wonders for us.  He name is holy. His mercy is from age to age on those who fear Him for He fills the starving with good things.

New Heaven and new earth

It is our task now to remove all the obstacles in the way and allow Him to renew us.

As we approach the end of the Liturgical Year, the Word of God for the 33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time invites us to be ready for accountability about how we have made use of the gifts given to each one of us by God. We ought to appreciate the generosity of the giver but also the potential for growth in each one of us. Due respect to God doesn’t mean having fear of Him, instead all our God-given talents are in need of investment for His Kingdom.
