Nov. 28, 2016: Monday, 1st Week of Advent A

Today’s reading is all about waiting.

Paul opens his letter to the Corinthians and explains to them that their clocks are off. The final coming of Jesus has not come yet. Like the Corinthians we must wait……patiently. We know not the hour or time of Jesus’ return but we do know one thing.

He has left us and all generations with the gifts to endure the wait. We have available to us His Church. We have the teachings He left us with. Just like the faithful waited for the promised Messiah to come in their time, we must wait as well.

This is not necessarily a bad thing. As we wait we can prepare. We can learn all there is to learn about Jesus and His teachings. There is so much we can learn about our faith that we can never learn all of it in our lifetime.

Learn as much as you can about your faith. Read scripture and good Catholic books daily. To know your faith is to know Jesus. To know Jesus is to know an eternal friend.
