Reading I: 1 Thessalonians 3:7-13
Responsorial: Psalms 90:3-5a, 12-13, 14 and 17
Gospel: Matthew 24:42-51
God is always speaking to us and looking after us. He is never away or on leave. We have to learn how to listen to him, how to notice his little hints in the life we live and respond to those around us....perhaps by sharing a meal with them with a kind word. Life is not often as dramatic as a household burglary, but it is full of little opportunities to be kind to our neighbour if we can spot them.
