Reflection For The Week

Today’s Gospel says that both Jesus & the thief come to us ‘@ the hour we least expect’. But there the similarity ends. The thief comes to rob us. Jesus comes to surprise us with His gifts. Like faithful servants we must always be on the alert for His coming.

But are we? Do we not often carelessly and foolishly, as if we were not accountable to God. Alas, many people are much more ready for the coming of the thief than for the coming of Christ. ‘Stay awake, because you do not know the day nor the hour of your master’s return…..

These words should shake us like the wind shakes a tree.
