SATURDAY 2nd DECEMBER 2023
Luke 21, 34-36
Jesus said to his disciples, “Take heed that your minds be not dulled with vice, drink and the cares of life. Always stay awake to stand before the Son of Man”.
Today we come to the end of the Christian year and Jesus gives us some advice in the Gospel because it can happen that, without realising it, our minds and hearts become dulled and we stand idly by, trembling in the face of our fears and insecurities and closing ourselves off from hope.
On this last day of the Christian year open wide the doors of your heart and life to the Lord who comes and wants to enter.
May the burdens of life not overpower your attention to the Lord.
Try today and always to remain firm and constant in thinking, living and being for the Lord. Be ready to live this coming Advent with joy and with the willingness to renew yourself and focus on the Lord who wants a place in your life and in the life of all of us in the midst of our hustle and bustle.
And rejoice because the Lord is very close to you and to all of us.
Have a good day and a happy beginning of Advent.
Good day to you.
