Prayer of the Day
Daily PrayerOctober 21st, 2015
Jesus said to his disciples: “You may be quite sure of this, that if the householder had known what hour the burglar would come, he would not have let anyone break through the wall of his house. You too must be ready, because the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.” When a man has had a great deal given to him a great deal more will be demanded of him; when a man has had a great deal given on trust, even more will be expected of him.
Reflection, the passage teaches something tremendously important. The more I receive the more that is expected of me. The words of Jesus; “The Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.” An alertness and responsibility, is very much part of this Gospel section. God’s gift for faithfulness is the heavenly banquet, Eucharistic sharing in God’s kingdom.
God’s mystery is present in the hour of our readiness. Amen
