The Kingdom of God

“The coming of the Kingdom of God cannot be observed, and no one will announce, ‘Look, here it is,’ or, ‘There it is.’ For behold, the Kingdom of God is among you.”- (Luke 17:21-22)

The Kingdom of God is indeed among us; Christ made that possible when he died on the cross. It is the Word; it’s in the Sacraments. It’s in our charity. It’s within anyone who accepts Christ as our savior. It’s in our children’s pure and innocent hearts.  It’s in the poor and the afflicted. It’s in the widow and the orphan. It’s in the Holy Spirit; our advocate. Unfortunately, our inclination to sin prevents us from fully seeing and experiencing the Kingdom of God. However, let’s not be discouraged. Let’s persevere in faith and hope so our hearts are always on the path to salvation.

May God bless you! Happy Thursday
