At the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass this morning, I drifted away, thinking of the new Earth that God would bring about at the end of time. It must have been a prayer or, maybe, the readings which set me adrift, or maybe the Spirit. I’m not sure.
I thought of our current Earth and the things in it which seem fallen – like stinging insects, venomous snakes, poisonous plants and trees, viruses and plagues.
The Son of God, when He comes, will take all of those fallen creatures away. Christ will fill all things with Himself, and all will be at peace, and happy in Him.
And the one who was seated on the throne said, “See, I am making all things new.” Also he said, “Write this, for these words are trustworthy and true.” [Revelation 21:5]
I have known this peace that all will have – no worries, no unfilled needs, but only fullness of Life – contentment in Him.
Amen. Maranatha. Come Lord Jesus!
