There's More in the Sunday Gospel than meets the Eye: 3 Dec 2017

We bring you our weekly reflection on the Sunday Gospel readings, entitled "There's More in the Sunday Gospel than meets the Eye," prepared by Jill Bevilacqua for 3rd December 2017.

 In this week's edition of There's More in the Gospel Than Meets the Eye, Jill Bevilacqua and Seàn-Patrick Lovett bring us readings and reflections for the First Sunday of Advent. 

Gospel  - Mk 13:33-37

Jesus said to his disciples:

"Be watchful! Be alert!
You do not know when the time will come.
It is like a man traveling abroad.
He leaves home and places his servants in charge,
each with his own work,
and orders the gatekeeper to be on the watch.
Watch, therefore;
you do not know when the Lord of the house is coming,
whether in the evening, or at midnight,
or at cockcrow, or in the morning.
May he not come suddenly and find you sleeping.
What I say to you, I say to all: 'Watch!'"
