The First Reading maybe a surprise for you as it was for me. I had recalled that this type of dream is found in Revelations, not so. This dream of Daniel’s prophesies the coming of the “Son of Man” whose dominion shall not be destroyed.
Finally, in the Gospel, Christ reminds us that the Kingdom of God is near and there are signs wherever we choose to look, even in the “simple” process of the seasonal cycle of growing trees. Our challenge is one of maintaining attention and intentional response.
Perhaps there is more than enough here to occupy our prayerful moments until the beginning of Advent on Sunday.
