Commentary on the Gospel of
The Gospel is teaching us to be vigilant. Vigilance entails an active watching and praying so as to prepare for the coming of the Lord. To be vigilant is to be sensitive to the many manifestations of Jesus in our life. Jesus is making himself present yet many people are blinded by all these manifestations, unable to see and hear Jesus because of too much preoccupation with a life of pleasure. Once we are blinded by our selfishness and self-centeredness, we forget other people and thus we miss Jesus passing by everyday and extending his presence to us through other people. We might miss that opportunity so be watchful and pray at all times. Be vigilant.
