Twenty First Thursday of Ordinary Time

“STAY AWAKE!”       (Matthew 24, 42-51)


Wait!  Watch!  Be vigilant!  Stay awake!

The Lord comes…each moment is fraught with Divine Presence.

Every event…God’s calling card.

Be prepared for He comes when least expected,

to take us Home to Himself.

He comes to still our restless heart,

to fill the gaping hole of our solitude.

Stay awake!  The time is brief in Heaven’s count

for the longed-for Homecoming into perfect Life.

Serve now with Hope-filled spirit,

For the Son of man comes, even now, at this moment.
