"Your Redemption Is Drawing Near"

The redemption (buying/winning back) of your soul took place on Calvary. . . .

This redemption was applied to you and made yours as it was poured over your head in Holy Baptism. . . . and even as you continue to hear the Word that is attached to Holy Baptism, your redemption is with you always even to the end of the age.

But there remains the redemption of your body, indeed the redemption of the whole physical world. . . .

It is this redemption of which our Lord Jesus speaks in today’s Gospel text.
