light your lamps

“Gird your loins and light your lamps and be like servants who await their master’s return from a wedding, ready to open immediately when he comes and knocks.” (LK 12: 35-36)

We do not know our future. We know our past and we have a moment to live our lives right now. We probably have met some people who are “living” in the future: tomorrow I will do it, maybe next year we can go on vacation, I’ll spend more time with my wife when I finish that project, etc. Our Lord warns us to take care of our lives today, and to “be like servants who wait their master’s return from a wedding.” Our relationship needs daily ritual, our children need to be loved today, our spouse was not kissed today… “Light your lamps” and look carefully where the space to improve your relationship is, where Your love is in need. 

“Stay awake and be ready! For you do not know on what day your Lord will come.” (Gospel Acclamation)
