In a few weeks, we will be coming to the end of our liturgical year and begin the season of Advent. During this time, our readings will centre on the theme of the ‘end times” where there will be the final judgement of God on all creation. This thought can provoke fear in each of us, particularly after reading Luke’s gospel of Jesus speaking of the destruction of the temple in Jerusalem and how there will be wars and insurrections, disaster and persecutions that will first take place. After all, the temple was a sign to the early Christians of the presence of God.
