The world as we know it is passing away

January 22, 2012

The Second Reading at Mass on the Third Sunday of Ordinary Time makes you think. Saint Paul’s letter (1 Corinthians 7:29-31) is still as relevant and fresh.

“Brothers, our time is growing short. Those who have wives should live as though they had none, and those who mourn should live as though they had nothing to mourn for; those who are enjoying life should live as though there was nothing to laugh about; those whose life is buying things should live as though they had nothing of their own; and those who have to deal with the world should not become engrossed in it. I say this because the world as we know it is passing away.”
