First Reading:   Isaiah 2:1-5

The visionary message presented in this reading focuses on the future day when God establishes a universal reign of peace. Divine decisions will make war obsolete, and the worshiping community responds: “let us walk in that light of that Lord now!”

Second Reading:  Romans 13:11-14

Paul compares the advent of Christ to the coming of dawn. We live our lives today in light of Christ’s coming in the future.

Gospel:   Matthew 24:36-44

Jesus describes his second coming as a sudden, unexpected event that will bring salvation or judgement upon people caught up in the usual affairs of daily life. He urges people to be alert and expectant.
