Readings for today’s Mass
On one hand, the season is a commemoration of the birth of Jesus. We remember that God loved the world enough to become one of us so we might learn something important about ourselves. God humbled himself and walked with us so that we might learn to walk humbly with God.
On the other hand, the season serves to remind us that, not only is Christ coming again, but he’s already here. We just never know when or under what circumstances we might encounter him. So we always have to be ready. We live in a state of anticipation of meeting Christ in a roommate, in a professor, in someone we meet on the street in the market place or strolling across campus.
As you prepare to celebrate the coming of the Lord, be sure to prepare yourself for the many ways in which you might see him. Will you know him in the encounter of a friend on campus? Will you see him in a visit with your professor? Is Jesus who you serve supper to at Sally's? Are you ready for him - wherever?
