Meet up with Christ
Being a Christian means waiting in hope with love. For centuries, believers have waited for Jesus’ return. The first disciples thought Christ’s return was imminent. That belief kept the fires of belief stoked, and that faith has been passed on through the years. Today, you can meet Christ through personal encounters in prayer, Eucharist, and other people. Meet everyone like Christ—that’s the mark of a living faith. That way, when Jesus comes, you will meet him with the same unifying love he shares with all people—even if you don’t recognize him right away.
Today’s readings: Ephesians 2:12-22; Luke 12:35-38 (474). “You are no longer strangers . . . you are fellow citizens with the holy ones.”
