today’s Gospel reading:
said to his disciples...
"Blessed are those servants whom the master finds vigilant
on his arrival.
say to you, he will gird himself, have them recline at
proceed to wait on them."
gospel turns our world upside down. God surprises us and
does the unexpected. Which is what is happening for us today
at our Eucharist. The master has come, as he said he would,
to serve and not to be served. He offers himself as food and
drink for us as we continue to wait for his return.
we ask ourselves:
Have you ever been surprised by God’s
unexpected action in your life?
When you realized what God had done for you,
how did you respond?
