Advent reminds us to be awake and ready for Jesus’ return. It is good to remind ourselves that Jesus’ Second Coming may happen unexpectedly so we need to be always ready and waiting for his return. (First Sunday of Advent Year B, Mark 13:33-37.)
Men discerning their vocation need to be awake and not asleep. They need to be ready and eager to listen to the Lord’s whisper, calling them to follow him in their vocation for life.
Kind regards and God bless
