30It will be just like that on the day the Son of Man is revealed. 31On that day, let no one on the housetop come down to retrieve his possessions. Likewise, let no one in the field return for anything he has left behind. 32Remember Lot’s wife! 33Whoever tries to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life will preserve it. 34I tell you, on that night two people will be in one bed: One will be taken and the other left. 35Two women will be grinding grain together: One will be taken and the other left.”e
It occured to me today the probable prophetic significance of this. At Mass it’s mainly a wealthy and elderly laity influencing the priest .In some cases they push the culture of fear to block others from receiving the Eucharist on the tongue from a priest. My wife and I are allowed to receive on the tongue from the priest but are told to come along at the end. ‘The last will be first’. We are not seeking to save our physical lives but nourish our souls with the blessed body of our lord Jesus. Fear should not be in the house of God. Jesus wants to feed his children as they should be fed. The wrong Catholics are first in line at the moment. They have their mortality, family legacy and money to worry about. Most covid mortalities are in the over 70s.
These fearful and influential Catholics have a similar angst that the secular apocolyptic eco protestors have. They worry about their physical death and not the soul. They worry about their genetic legacy.
Jesus was talking about the coming of the kingdom when he mentioned those who seek to save their lives will lose it.
