Jesus said to his disciples: "In those days after that tribulation the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will be falling from the sky, and the powers in the heavens will be shaken.
"And then they will see 'the Son of Man coming in the clouds' with great power and glory, and then he will send out the angels and gather his elect from the four winds, from the end of the earth to the end of the sky. "Learn a lesson from the fig tree. When its branch becomes tender and sprouts leaves, you know that summer is near. In the same way, when you see these things happening, know that he is near, at the gates. Amen, I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things have taken place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away. "But of that day or hour, no one knows, neither the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father."
Pope Francis’ Intentions for the month of November 2018

Archdiocese of Miami – Office of the Archbishop
November 18, 2018
Dear Friends in Christ:
As an archdiocese, we will soon take up the national collection for the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD). Your support to this collection brings change to communities across the country and empowers those living in poverty to transform the places they live into reflections of the Kingdom of God. Your support goes a long way in creating communities that are more just and welcoming to those who live trapped in the cycle of poverty. In addition to making an impact nationally, those living in poverty in our own diocese are empowered through the 25 percent share of the collection that stays here.

- “But the wise shall shine brightly like the splendor of the firmament, and those who lead the many to justice shall be like the stars forever” DN 12:3
- The readings speak of the end of the world and the coming of the Kingdom. Our ‘life to come’ is in continuity with this present life through the human goods, the worthy human purposes, which people foster now.” May our good stewardship cause us to be numbered among the chosen on the last day!
