5th SUNDAY OF EASTER
-C- May 19, 2019
Acts 14: 21-27; Psalm 145; Revelation 21: 1-5; John 13:
today’s Revelation reading:
John, saw a new heaven and a new earth.
former heaven and the former earth had passed away,
sea was no more
Revelation is the assurance that, despite the apparent
victories of evil in our world, God is sovereign and just
and will overcome evil in the end and reward the just who
have persevered and lived faithful lives. Revelation speaks
to those who look to God for a comfort that only God can
give. It is a prophetic book urging us to hear the Word of
God and stay faithful to the covenant God has made with us
So, we ask ourselves:
If someone were to ask you, "Which do you
think is winning in the world, good or
evil?" What would you answer?
What hope does the reading from Revelation
stir in you?
