Time for a song
If you’re reading this, so far this year you’ve survived two apocalyptic predictions. One fellow was so sure that Judgment Day was May 21 that he persuaded others to quit their jobs and paper the country with warnings. The other messenger, channeling an alleged ancient spirit, predicted that an earthquake on June 15 would devastate the West Coast. Some continue to root for the Mayan calendar, suggesting that we will run out of time on 12-21-12. But many of us will put our trust in Jesus, who said the day cannot be known. On the feast of the patron saint of music, we’d rather sing a song than whistle in the dark.

TODAY’S READINGS: Daniel 2:31-45; Luke 21:5-11 (504)
“Many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am he,’ and ‘The time has come.’ Do not follow them!”
