First Sunday Of Advent: November 27, 2022

sonofmanThe earliest Christian community expected Jesus’ imminent return. But when he didn’t come and the years grew into decades, the community redefined their understanding of the "coming of the Son of Man" and adopted a stance of patient expectation. The conclusion of our Gospel passage today sums up this communal vision as it has been lived throughout the ages: “So too, you also must be prepared, for at an hour you do not expect, the Son of Man will come.” But the Gospel understanding of the phrase "the coming of the Son of Man" was a bit different.

In the 21st century we do not look for his “coming” with the same intense expectation of the first Christians. In Jesus' view, the Kingdom is always near, always present and ready to break through the barriers of every day life. We are immersed in the essence of God where we allow him to take hold of us, impel us, embrace us, challenge us. And if we pay attention and are "vigilant," we will be able to find evidence of His all-encompassing Love in the simple, ordinary and sometimes tragic events that go to make up our daily lives.
