For Your Reflection:

23rd Sunday after Pentecost
The end is near.  There is no doubt about it.  The warnings are dire.  The tone of today’s texts is ominous. But the baptized know how to live in the “meantime.”  The baptized are strengthened for the living of these days in word and sacrament.  The baptized rally around the invitation of the apostle:  “Brothers and sister, do not be weary in doing what is right.”
