How do we respond to the coming of Christ? Are we joyful? Do we anticipate His presence? True joy does not consist in possessing many things, but in loving others and in feeling ourselves to be loved by the Lord.
Fr. Jacob Strand reflects on the Gospel of Matthew 13: 33-37
“May he not come suddenly and find you sleeping. What I say to you, I say to all: 'Watch!'”
