The world as we have known it (or supposed it to be in human terms) is coming to an end. Our time of worldwide pandemic, of climate catastrophe, of endemic violence and injustice, of failed leadership and demagoguery is unique to us and yet it is nothing new. But, our call of witness and fidelity to Christ remains constant, manifested in ways ever new. As this old world passes away, may we receive grace to persevere in Jesus’ self-offering of love, extending mercy and justice to all as we actively hope in God’s future.
