BE READY FOR CHRIST’S RETURN
19th October 2021
Memorial of Saints John de Brebeuf and Isaac Joques, priests and martyrsand their companions, martyrs
“….. ready to open the door as soon as he comes and knocks. It may be in the second watch that he comes, or in the third, but blessed are those servants if he finds them ready.” Jesus says we always need to be ready, because we never know when he will come again.
Being ready means turning away from sin and turning towards God. Being ready also means having a sense of urgency about sharing the gospel. Other people need to be ready to meet Jesus, too. Are you ready, or not? What do we look like on the other side of the door Jesus is knocking at?
Jesus, help us to live faithful lives that are ready for Your return. Amen.
