Jesus warns us that all kinds of calamities will happen as the Kingdom of God is being manifest as surely as the Fig Tree's blossoms indicate that Summer is here. Watching the news we see that indeed the Kingdom of God is upon us both in the area of calamities and the real good that is being accomplished by Christians across the world motivated by their love of Jesus to care for those in need. We pray for religious freedom, and access to education especially for girls and women through the intercession of St Catherine of Alexandria.
