FAITH BOOK

32nd ORDINARY TIME (A) NOVEMBER 12, 2017

Wisdom 6: 12-16; Psalm 63; 1 Thessalonians 4: 13-18; Matthew 25: 1-13

Jude Siciliano, OP

 

Mini-reflections on the Sunday scripture readings designed for persons on the run. "Faith Book" is also brief enough to be posted in the Sunday parish bulletins people take home.

 

From today’s Gospel reading:

 

[Jesus said to his disciples]

"Therefore, stay awake,

For you know neither the day nor the hour."

 

Reflection:

 

Our daily routine can be shattered by the unexpected and sudden demands life puts on us and our loved ones. Will we be ready to respond? It depends on how well we have tended to our "oil" supply.

 

So we ask ourselves:

 

  • What helps me "stay awake" and alert to God’s entrance into my daily life?

  • Is there a practice of prayer, or reflection, I can adopt to help me better respond to Christ each day?
