Be Ready and Prepared

Fr.-JeromeDear friends: Christian spirituality has always insisted on the need to live this life as a clear and certain preparation for the future eternal life. The mere desire of eternal life is not sufficient, but the life a person lives must show in practical ways this preparedness, and the worthiness for the Kingdom of Heaven. The message given to us today is one of watchfulness and to be ready to receive the Lord. As we approach the end of the Liturgical Year, the Church seems to place these very mysteries before us. We have to be alert to the signs God gives us in our lives. When troubles overtake us, we have to build our lives on the practice of faith, hope and love. We are called upon to keep the light burning in our lives
