Sunday 33C: "you are not to prepare"

... your defense beforehand, for I myself shall give you a wisdom in speaking that all your adversaries will be powerless to resist or refute. Lk 21:5-19

In one place the Scriptures tell us to prepare, but in today's Gospel it seems as though the Lord is instructing us to do the very opposite: do not prepare! But, in fact, what He means is that He Himself is our "preparation"; He Himself will be with us to defend and protect from evil and from eternal separation from Him in the place He describes as "Hades" or "Hell".
