Jesus reminds us that we need to be vigilant and pay attention. Patrick Saint-Jean, SJ, reflects on the warning of Christ and challenges us to pay attention to Christ within our midst. Based on the readings for Sunday, November 14, 2021.
Pay Attention: The time of the Lord is here.
Hi, my name is Patrick Saint-Jean. This is my One-Minute Reflection.
Today, Mark is inviting us to engage in a narrative of time with Jesus. He is inviting us to pay attention, be vigilant because the time of the coming of God’s is here and now:
“Be Vigilant that you have strength to stand before the son of Man”.
This is an invitation to meet Christ who is with us now and pay attention to his presence in our families, friends, children, spouses, and strangers.
Christ is not a ghost; he does not reside only in a place called heaven that you and I do not know. Christ is here, and now with us. In all of us.
Be vigilant and pay attention.
