About Today Readings

Apocalypse 22:1-7. Psalm 94(95):1-7. Luke 21:34-36.
Maranatha! Come, Lord Jesus! – Psalm 94(95):1-7.

‘Maranatha! Come, Lord Jesus!’

Today’s Gospel gives a warning to stay alert while also reminding us of the comfort and support God can bring. When we focus too much on the busyness of our lives or become slaves to our work, our passions, or any form of addiction, we can lose sight of the life God can give us.

In the next verse of the Gospel, not in today’s reading, Jesus leads by example and goes off to spend time with God on the Mount of Olives. He put his relationship with his Father at the centre of his mission. We are challenged to do the same. Sharing our life with God in prayer can lighten our load and keep us awake to the presence of the Lord in our days.
