The Coming of the Kingdom of God Cannot Be Observed – Nov 16 – Homily – Fr Alan

Views 58


Fr Alan gives the homily on Nov 16, 2023, commenting on the Gospel teaching of Our Lord about the mystery of the Church: that the coming of the Kingdom of God first happens in the heart, via conversion, and thus "cannot be observed" directly, as a worldly or material event. This coming happens gradually, person by person, and is constantly happening, unseen in the world, except as a manifestation via the Church and its influence in the world.
