Tuesday of Week 29 Year 1

On Sundays, we see quite a number of people attending Mass, some perhaps do so out of habit, some to fulfil the Sunday obligation, others because they genuinely want to be nourished by the Lord as they struggle through life.

However, it is interesting to note that few prepare themselves for Mass, especially in making a good confession to sweep clean the soul. Some make a confession only once or twice a year, especially during the Advent and Lent confessions, others perhaps do so only after a long period of time. We seem to be eager to attend Mass, but how many of us are eager to make a good confession? Seems like some of us procrastinate until it may be too late.

Today's Gospel reminds us that we should make every effort to be ready to meet the Lord. The question is this: how truly ready are we? Are we ready to meet him immediately if he comes right now? Or are we going to scramble and prepare ourselves only when that moment comes?
