32ND SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
The Gospel today is often read at vigil and funeral services. It is our warning to be prepared, because we don’t know the day or the hour. We should always be ready when Jesus comes.
Getting ready is work, and work requires motivation. It’s good to heed the old proverb “don’t put off until tomorrow what you can do today.” But some folks say, “I do my work at the same time each day. The last minute!” And Mark Twain, speaking for all experienced procrastinators, took it one step further when he quipped, “Don’t put off until tomorrow what you can do the day after tomorrow.”
