This is the day the Lord has made! In today’s Gospel we are exhorted to be ready for the coming of the Lord in our lives. None of us knows the hour or the day when we will come before God, when we will come face to face with our own judgment day. Are we ready? Or have we been putting aside, been putting off, those things that will bring us closer to God in favor of things that lead us to temporal worldly things. Weighty thoughts and words for this Sunday. The following are resources to help you prepare for, and/or reflect on, todays readings so you can draw closer to our God through HIs word.
God Bless – Peace
