When the Messiah Comes…

By Sister Catherine Cleary, OSB

When the Messiah comes, will he find us ready?

By ready I mean, will he find that we have made room in our hearts for those who have wounded us? Will he find light in our spirits for those who have ignored us? Will he find warmth in our homes for those who have criticized us? Will he find we have prepared gifts for those who offer none for us?

If not, what will we say when he asks if we are ready? What will we say?

We will have to say … No, Lord. We are not ready, not yet.
