It’s the last full weekend in August, and we’re preparing for the end of summer. We had a little bit of a break in the very hot weather this past week, giving us signs that Fall is near.
Students will be going back to school and many of us will be finishing vacation and returning to work. Everyone will be discussing their vacations with one another while looking back and enjoying the memory of the summer.
As we come together again with co-workers and friends, we can enjoy the time with one another. In today’s gospel, Jesus speaks to us about being prepared. We don’t know when Jesus will come a second time and we will receive our final judgment. As we stay true to Jesus’s teaching of love for God and one another, we’re preparing ourselves for that day.
So as we’re looking ahead towards the summer coming to an end, let’s keep in mind what Jesus teaches us. In all of our relationships with one another, we can follow Jesus’s teaching of love.
Sincerely in Christ,
