“The Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.” Today’s Gospel.

Many people search for their place in the world – a niche where they are happy and contented making their contributions to society, to life in their parish, to family and friends… whatever. We may never know what effect our lives have on others but hopefully it is all good and positive. We learn from each other and we are all invited to find the way of life which is unique and growthful for each of us.

Today’s Gospel says “The Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect”. What does this mean to you? We are not the source of our own lives nor is anything in creation its own source. The Son of Man – Jesus reveals himself to us at times we do not expect it – in those wonderful shared or solitary moments – the memory of which can keep us going in difficult times.

We are invited to be ready and waiting, so as not to miss out on the workings of God in our lives, to be thankful for all we have been
given, for opportunities that arise, for friends and family. We are called to surrender our lives totally to God. This has to be done over and over again each moment of every day.

“You must stand ready.” Gospel.

‘Ann Sayers’
