Thirty-fourth Week in Ordinary Time
Dear my friends,
Here is the Gospel for us today according to St. Luke 21:34-36
Jesus said to his disciples: “Beware that your hearts do not become drowsy from carousing and drunkenness and the anxieties of daily life, and that day catch you by surprise like a trap. For that day will assault everyone who lives on the face of the earth. Be vigilant at all times and pray that you have the strength to escape the tribulations that are imminent and to stand before the Son of Man.”
This is the Gospel of the Lord. Praise to you Lord Jesus Christ.
IN fact, our life is a time of preparation for an eternal friendship with God in heaven. But we have to prepare it wisely and properly.
We must watch and pray that we may not enter into temptation. It requires awareness not only of the enemies and threats that surround us, but also of the weaknesses within us.
In the Perpetual Adoration of the Eucharist while adoring Jesus Christ we learn to prepare our future. There we realize that we must be on guard each day. We stand before him sincerely and trustingly in prayer.
Let’s pray: Lord Jesus Christ, grant us a sense of urgency. Wake us up from any spiritual carelessness, now and forever. Amen.
