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.
November 29, 2020 Sunday
Gospel: Mark 13: 33-37
YOU KNOW NOT WHEN THE TIME IS
Today is the first Sunday of Advent, the start of the new Liturgical Year. The Gospel today is a reminder that we should always be spiritually ready for the Second Coming of Jesus, for we do not know when the time is. God loves us so much. His only desire is for us to be reunited with Him for eternity.
The Holy Bible reveals to us everything that we need to know about our Creator and His great saving plan for us. It is where God speaks to us. Hence, it is necessary to immerse in God's Word everyday, by listening or reading Gospel homilies, reading the Holy Bible and reflecting on it. Then pray for the grace of wisdom and understanding that we may act on it, and be transformed by it.
Mama Mary, grant unto us your virtue of simplicity of heart. We desire to be attentive only to what truly matters in the eyes of your Son Jesus, so He may find us most pleasing upon His return. Amen.
