New heavens and a new earth

March 16, 2015 8:45 am

“Thus says the LORD: Lo, I am about to create new heavens and a new earth; the things of the past shall not be remembered or come to mind. Instead, there shall always be rejoicing and happiness in what I create; for I create Jerusalem to be a joy and its people to be a delight; I will rejoice in Jerusalem and exult in my people.” (IS 65: 17-19)

Redemption means a new creation, and new creation needs “new heavens and a new earth.” Redemption causes us to rejoice and “to be a delight.”  Whatever we do for God, we should do it with joy and happiness. We are invited to seek God’s creation and to be focused on the good.

“Seek good and not evil so that you may live, and the LORD will be with you.” (Gospel Acclamation)
