In the name of the Father and of the +Son and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.
Next week Advent starts with its countdown to Christmas. That means a new church year starts for us. But we are not there yet. Today, on this last week of the church’s year, we hear a parable told by Our Lord in the last week of His life. And it concerns us! But not us right now. Us in the future. At that time, when Our Lord comes again. It concerns the kingdom of God. It concerns all the baptized ones.
