The early Church expected the imminent return of Jesus Christ. In speaking of his second coming, Jesus described himself as a master returning from a wedding and expected to find his servants vigilant on his arrival.  

Likewise, his disciples should never leave a task undone that ought to be finished before his return. Jesus made the unlikely comparison of himself to a thief in the night (1Thes 5:2). He pointed to the uncertain hour of his return telling his disciples to be prepared whenever he might come.

The faithful servant who watched over the household (the Church) would be rewarded when the master returned. Unfaithful servants would be punished for their shameful behavior. Jesus warned these future leaders of the Church that they would be held more accountable than those who acted out of ignorance. If Jesus' followers are faithful servants who watch over the household of God, the Church here on earth, they will be rewarded for their fidelity.

REFLECTING: Am I a good steward of the treasure and talents the Lord has given me?
PRAYING: Lord Jesus, help me to be a faithful and trustworthy servant of you and your people.

National Vocation
Awareness Week


4th & 11th of August - Remembering our Need to Pray for Priestly & Religious Vocations. This Sunday we pray in particular for the common Christian vocation of all the baptised. As we reflect on the theme of vocations, let us pray also for vocations to the Capuchin Friars.

Any young men who feel the Lord may be calling them to follow Him through the priest-hood or religious life are invited to speak to one of the friars, to visit the Capuchin website, or to contact the vocation director Fr Thomas McFadden on: vocations@capuchinfriars.org.au.




In questo brano del Vangelo Cristo ci dice di non avere paura, di non lasciarci prendere dall’angoscia: il nostro stato d’animo di sempre deve essere una tranquilla fiducia in Dio, poiché “al Padre vostro è piaciuto di darvi il suo regno”. 

Dobbiamo aprire un conto in questo regno, perché solo lì si trova la vera ricchezza. La motivazione e il fine dell’uomo provengono sempre da dove egli pensa che si trovino i veri valori: “Perché dove è il vostro tesoro, lì sarà anche il vostro cuore”. Questa priorità implica che noi siamo distaccati dal denaro e dai beni materiali, e che li utilizziamo per il bene altrui, essendo responsabili davanti a Dio della loro gestione.

Dobbiamo anche tenerci in uno stato di veglia costante, aspettando la venuta di Cristo: “Siate pronti, con la cintura ai fianchi e le lucerne accese”. Come i servi non sanno quando il loro padrone rientrerà dal ricevimento di nozze, come un uomo non può sapere quando entreranno i ladri nella sua casa, così noi non conosciamo l’ora della nostra morte, quando cioè Cristo tornerà per noi.

Riflessione: Sono io un degno custode dei tesori che il Signore mi ha affidato?
Preghiera: Signore Gesu’, aiutami a servire te ed il tuo popolo fedelmente.
