Gospel: Mark 13:24-32
24 ‘But in those days, after that time of distress, the sun will be darkened, the moon will not give its light,
25 the stars will come falling out of the sky and the powers in the heavens will be shaken.

27 And then he will send the angels to gather his elect from the four winds, from the ends of the world to the ends of the sky.
