Homily (Reflection) for Friday of the Thirty-Second Week in Ordinary Time (II) (16th November, 2018) on the Gospel
Ps 118:1-2.10-11.17-18. (R. v.1);
Topic: Do the necessary.
Jesus went on and told the people that the coming of the Son of Man will be likened to the days of Noah and the days of Lot. The people were busy doing what pleased them when the destruction came. He went ahead and said that there will be no room for any action.
Today we hear here and there, that the second coming of Christ is near, that this or that sign was seen, that this or that happened, and so on. My dear brothers and sisters, do we need those signs before we repent? We ought to be ever ready for the Son of Man. There is no need looking for one sign or another. Jesus Himself told us that there will be none.
Jesus admonishes, “Watch therefore – for you do not know when the master of the house will come, in the evening, or at midnight, or at cockcrow, or in the morning” (Mk 13:35). He further said, “Blessed are those servants whom the master finds awake when he comes; truly, I say to you, he will gird himself and have them sit at table, and he will come and serve them” (Lk 12:37). Those that will rejoice are neither those who will see the signs nor those who know when but only those who are ready.
Bible Reading: Rev 22:1-7.
Thought for today: Do not look for signs.
Let us pray: May Jesus Christ, our Lord help us prepare for his coming – Amen.
