Thursday-Twenty-First Week-Ordinary Time

Heavenly Father, Creator of the innumerable heavens and our own small blue planet, thank you for noticing the heart cries of one subsequently small in a universe so huge. We love you, admire you, trust you, and worship you with surprise. Be exalted in our life, our words, and our deeds this day. In Infant Jesus' name we pray. Amen.
  WORD OF THE DAY ...
Psalm 19:1-2: The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge.
  Today's Readings ... (August 25, 2011)
Thursday of the Twenty-First Week in Ordinary Time
First Reading: 1 Thessalonians 3:7-13
Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 90:3-5a,12-13,14&17
Gospel: Matthew 24:42-51

  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (Matthew 24:42-51)
As today’s Gospel, if we come to know that a thief in the night is about to strike our home and threaten our life, wouldn't we look for to protect ourselves from harm's way? Jesus' today’s parable of the thief in the night brings home the requirement for watchfulness and being on protector to avert the danger of plunder and obliteration, especially under the cover of darkness and silence! While no thief would proclaim his target in advance, nor the time when he would strike, lack of watchfulness would however invite disaster for those who are unprepared to keep their money and their lives secure at all times! The burglar strikes when he is least predictable! What is the treasure which the Lord Jesus wants us to protect in case we lose it? It is the treasure of his kingdom – a kingdom of justice, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit. We can lose heaven and friendship with God if we permit Satan – the fraud and father of lies – to rob us of our faith and belief in God! The Lord Jesus luckily does not leave us on our own – he stands watch with us to guide, direct, and keep on us from harm’s way.
