Weekly Reflection

"Be on your guard, stay awake, because you never know when the time will come..."

Mark 13:33-37

This week sees the start of Advent - the period of waiting for the coming of Christ. It also sees the start of Cycle B - The Gospel of Mark. The main focus of St Mark's Gospel is the person of Jesus - his life and works.

The period of waiting for the coming of Christ is adeptly  summed up in the Gospel's passage: Stay awake! Advent doesn't just signify awaiting the birth of Christ but it also reminds us of the second coming of Christ. Just like the doorkeeper having to stay awake for the expectation of his master's return, we too are called to be alert, like a faithful servant, waiting for the return of our master - Christ.
