Welcome to Assumption!

As we progress closer to the end of this liturgical year and a beginning of a new one on the First Sunday of Advent, the readings we hear focus our attention on the end times. This week, we find James and John asking for their places in the kingdom of glory. I suppose we would all like to know that we have a good seat reserved in the kingdom. But what the disciples and, perhaps we ourselves, need to learn is that the cost of the kingdom is bound to the whole life of Christ, not just the good times, the miracles, the powerful moments and the wonderful meals. Being a faithful Christian involves a lot more than just a happy feeling. In the second reading we are reminded that we can confidently offer up all of our lives, both the good times and the bad, to our Lord. In the reading from Hebrews we hear how “we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who has similarly been tested in every way, yet without sin. So let us confidently approach the throne of grace to receive mercy and to find grace for timely help”

Fr. Tony Pelak
