Today is the final day of Ordinary Time. Today’s first reading from the last chapter of Revelation offers fitting words as we leave Ordinary Time and enter the Advent season:
And he (the angel) said to me, “These words are trustworthy and true,
and the Lord, the God of prophetic spirits,
sent his angel to show his servants what must happen soon.”
“Behold, I am coming soon.” (Revelation 22:6-7)
Advent is a time of reflection and preparation. We prepare not only for the coming of Jesus at Christmas, but for His second coming as well – whenever that may be.
Behold, He is coming soon – stay vigilant!
