Stay awake!

“Stay awake! For you do not know on which day your Lord will come.” (Mt 24:42)

We know He will come again. This is certain. The question is—when? Our Lord says: “stay awake” because He will come very discreetly, only to those who are able to stay alert. He reminds us: “you … must be prepared, for at an hour you do not expect, the Son of Man will come.” My daily prayers, daily readings and daily Mass enable me to be alert and focused on Him. When He is always in my heart, I will be able to recognize Him—when “the Son of Man will come.”

“In the midst of the Church he opened his mouth, and the Lord filled him with the spirit of wisdom and understanding and clothed him in a robe of glory.” (Entrance Antiphon)
