33rd sunday in ordinary time, C

The problem is we don't seem to connect heaven and earth.  Heaven is future while what we have right now is earth.

But we can't delay heaven.  God is not future.  He is today.

We have to correct the notion of separation of heaven and earth:

1. kingdom of God is now, it started while we were children and it is on-going.  
2. Jesus - how much have we known him?  We need to identify with Jesus now.
3. love - not only families, but also the poor.  Love now.

This is how we connect heaven and earth.
