In our rather apocalypic Gospel for today, Jesus is not so much predicting the end of the space-time continuum as he is showing that a new world arrives through his death and resurrection. Apocalypse means literally “unveiling,” and what is unveiled, revealed in the Paschal Mystery is none other than the end of an old way of being and the beginning of a new one.
