Reflections of Faith
Read and be inspired by a reflection based on today's Gospel made by members of the Verbum Dei Family in Manila.
August 11, 2019 – Sunday
Gospel: Lk 12: 32- 48
Prepare and be vigilant!
Our gospel today tells us that preparation is an important aspect of our life and relationship with Jesus. Our life will be full of ups and downs that’s why we must know how to face it. In the parable, the people light their lamps and wait for the arrival of their master. They need to be vigilant and look for the sign of the master’s arrival.
Jesus reminds us that in order to prepare, one must know how to be patient. We must be patient in waiting for God’s will and plan for our lives.
Mother Mary, help us to prepare and be patient with the prayers that our heart carries. Amen.
