Geeky Catholic Advent: First Sunday of Advent 2018

Gospel Reading: Luke 21:25-28, 34-36

Highlight: "Beware that your hearts do not become drowsy from carousing and drunkenness and the anxieties of daily life, and that day [the Second Coming and the General Judgment] catch you by surprise like a trap."

Reflection: It is easy to be distracted from our spiritual lives - not just from literal carousing and drunkenness, but from all the passing things of this world. We must always remember that we are destined for eternity, and that we will be called to account for all our actions (and failures to act) in this life.

Geeky Quote: "Constant vigilance!" - Mad-Eye Moody, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Prayer: Jesus, I ask you to give me the grace to remember You in everything I do. Keep me from sin, so that Your coming will not catch me by surprise. Amen.
