His Name

When you hear of wars and insurrections, do not be terrified…Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be powerful earthquakes, famines, and plagues...and awesome sights and mighty signs will come from the sky…they will seize and persecute you…and they will have you led before kings and governors, because of my name. It will lead to your giving testimony. Remember, you are not to prepare your defense beforehand, for I myself shall give you a wisdom in speaking… Luke 21

With vivid apocalyptic imagery Jesus points to the precariousness of our earthly existence. Empowered by his love and presence, overshadowed by the powerful invocation of his Holy Name, we move forward in hope and peace, faithful in little things, seeking to do the ordinary well.
