Readings for today’s Mass
In today's gospel, we hear Jesus proclaiming: This is the time of fulfillment. The kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel.
Last year a friend from downtown died. He had waited to turn 62 so he could draw on his social security and pension. He died before he was 63.
We are all pretty good at putting things off. Seems there is always a better time for more important things. But as we all know, we can't always count on a better time to get something done.
Scripture tells us that now is the time to act. You need to get moving? Now is the time. You need to make some changes? Now is the time. It's what Jesus is telling us. It's what Paul is telling us. It's what life tells us. We don't always get tomorrow. Do you remember "Dum tempus habemus, oporemur bonum."? While you have the time, do something good. Keep in mind that the only time you have is now. Let now be a very acceptable time for whatever you need to take care of.
