Today, we begin 3 days of readings at mass from II Thess. I Thess. was written by Paul to calm the people whom were upset that many Christians had died before the Second Coming. They were afraid that they would be left out of the benefits of Jesus’ return. Paul told them that was just not so. II Thess. addresses the fact that many had thought the Second Coming had already happened. II Thes. says that there will be certain things that have to happen before Jesus returns. So, don’t worry and go about living a good Christian life. Sound advice for us today!
