Mindful of my imperfections, seeking to know Truth more deeply and to live Love more fully.

Quid sum miser tunc dicturus? Quem patronum rogaturus? Cum vix iustus sit securus?

"Drowsy from... the anxieties of daily life"

Thus says the Lord Jesus:

Beware that your hearts do not become drowsy
from carousing
and drunkenness
and the anxieties of daily life,
and that Day catch you by surprise like a trap.

For that Day will assault everyone
who lives on the face of the earth.

Be vigilant at all times
and pray that you have the strength
to escape the tribulations that are imminent
and to stand before the Son of Man.

(yesterday's Gospel: Luke 21:34-36)
