Our Lord warned we do not know the day nor hour but we shall know the season. Therefore, be sober and do not slumber. Keep watchful even into the second and third watch of the night for we knowest not when the Bridegroom returns. How many in these modern times put off salvation for the cares of this world. How many deceive themselves by thinking there will always be another day. So many are drunk off the worlds distractions that they pay little care to their eternal soul. So many still say I can have the world and Christ and yet these Christ shall turn away. For few are His elect and wide is the road unto hell in which men trodden down as zombies.
We must keep our eyes open as eagles in Charity. We must try to see from heavens perspective and not our own. Be watchful He commands His own and yet how can men keep their eyes focused upon Christ and the world at the same time? A watchful pair of eyes will first have a heart wholly united to Christ which does not care for the things of this world. Furthermore, church men and laity did not keep watch over doctrine and thus we have handed over our churches to the “aliens” of our times (the modernists). We fell asleep and seemingly enjoy this sleep. Sadly it seems very few want to arise out of this slumber. So I ask, "Who will stand watch with Christ? Who will keep attentive in the Garden?"
Love watches and takes care for wilst self sleeps. We are called to watch over our hearts and souls. We are to be ready every minute of the day to receive Christ. We thank Him this day for all graces and pray that those still slumbering along now arise. Without question modern man is drunk off of the wine of his time. Thus modern man needs to be put into “spiritual detox”. Thieves can only enter in if the house is first not secured and watched after. The man whose eyes are fixated upon this world leaves the front door open! Make no mistake God will send His wrath and men wilst finally see the darkness self permeates into the world. Men will see what happens when truth is no longer accepted. God has long been patient and merciful with sinners and now His Lips of Justice shalst soon kiss the world. Will ye be a true a disciple and stay awake and pay heed to the signs? Or will you succumb to the night’s dark which puts one’s heart and soul to sleep? Let us pray that we are all ready every second of the day. Have your heart ready by standing at the door of your heart awaiting the knock rather than be in the living room watching the TV loudly so you cannot hear His call. Keep guard over your heart and keep at work, amen
Keep thy Lamp burning in thy Hand
Awaiting His return
For we knowest not the hour according to His Plan
Whence He shall come to knock
Lest we miss this coming of the Son of man
Let your loins be girt, and lamps burning in your hands.  And you yourselves like to men who wait for their lord, when he shall return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open to him immediately.  Blessed are those servants, whom the Lord when he cometh, shall find watching. Amen I say to you, that he will gird himself, and make them sit down to meat, and passing will minister unto them.  And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants.  But this know ye, that if the householder did know at what hour the thief would come, he would surely watch, and would not suffer his house to be broken open.  Be you then also ready: for at what hour you think not, the Son of man will come.
Luke 12: 35-40
