Commentary on the Gospel of
WE are warned: Stay awake for we don't know when our Lord is coming. When will the kingdom come? When will judgment come for the earth? When will it come for our nation? When will it come for us individually? When will our God come in glory? It will be unexpected-like a thief breaking into our houses! That's unnerving. Each of us has been put in charge of something in God's kingdom. Are we watchful, obedient and good servants or are we fighting with one another, forgetful of the master's will and hopes for his kingdom on earth among us? Will be we caught unawares; dismissed and cast out with all the others who didn't claim to be servants but served the gods and powerful of the world? It's growing late in ordinary time and we are must examine whether we are actually living as the servant of the Jesus the Risen Lord who has great expectations of our continuing his work on earth.
