      4. Reflections on Matthew 24: 42-51
      by Lectio

      The Gospel today speaks about the coming of the Lord at the end of time
      and exhorts us to be watchful, to watch. At the time of the first
      Christians, many persons thought that the end of this world was close at
      hand and that Jesus would have returned afterwards. Today many persons
      think that the end of the world is close at hand. And therefore, it is
      well to reflect on the meaning of vigilance, of watching. ...

      5. Watch-Be Ready
      by David B. Curtis

      The lives of those early Christians were dependent upon their
      watchfulness. They were to be watching for their Lord's coming in
      judgment upon apostate Israel. Before we go any further, let me ask you
      a question, "Who was to be watching?" Christians! Isn't that who the
      Lord was talking to? ..

      6. Reflections on Matthew 24:42-51
      by Daily Homily

      I like the parables that teach us to come anytime and Jesus will accept
      you just the way you are. But there is an end to the window of
      opportunity, and it comes at death or at the second coming, which ever
      comes first for you. And then there are no second chances. Hebrews 9:27
      says, "It is destined that each person dies only once and after that
      comes judgment." Are you ready? Is your life in order? If He were to
      come right now are you prepared to meet him? ...


      7. Reflection: The Beautiful Hands of a Priest

      8. Featured: Six Decades of Priesthood
      by Pope Benedict XVI

      At a deep level, the essence of love, the essence of genuine fruit,
      coincides with the idea of setting out, going towards: it means
      self-abandonment, self-giving, it bears within itself the sign of the
      cross. Gregory the Great once said in this regard: if you are striving
      for God, take care not to go to Him by yourselves alone -- a saying that
      we priests need to keep before us every day. ..

      What is a priest? What are the powers and duties of a priest? ...

      10. The Priest is a Gift From Christ
      by Pope Benedict XVI

      The priest is formed by Christ's charity itself, that love that moved
      him to give his life for his friends and also to pardon his enemies.
      Because of this, priests are the first builders of the civilization of
      love. ...

      11. The Priesthood: The Love of The Heart of Jesus
      by St John Vianney

      But the fingers of the priest, that have touched the adorable Flesh of
      Jesus Christ, that have been plunged into the chalice which contained
      His Blood, are they not still more precious? The priesthood is the love
      of the Heart of Jesus. When you see the priest, think of Our Lord Jesus
      Christ. ..
