C 20221113 Thirty-third Sunday in Ordinary Time(
MESSAGE OF HIS HOLINESS POPE FRANCIS
FOR THE FIFTH WORLD DAY OF THE POOR
13 November 2022, Thirty-third Sunday in Ordinary Time)
Lo, the day is coming, blazing like an oven,
when all the proud and all evildoers will be stubble,
and the day that is coming will set them on fire,
leaving them neither root nor branch,
says the LORD of hosts.
2 Thes 3:7-12
Brothers and sisters:
You know how one must imitate us.
For we did not act in a disorderly way among you,
nor did we eat food received free from anyone.
In fact, when we were with you,
we instructed you that if anyone was unwilling to work,
neither should that one eat.
We hear that some are conducting themselves among you in a
by not keeping busy but minding the business of others.
Such people we instruct and urge in the Lord Jesus Christ to work quietly
and to eat their own food.
By your perseverance you will secure your lives.
