time after time


"if you're lost you can look
and you will find Me
time after time
if you fall I will catch you
I'll be waiting
time after time" (Cyndi Lauper - Time after Time, 1984)
today is my day off. i take it most of the time. sometimes we (i) get worried and distracted by many things. time after time, Our Lord is always present to us. no matter how many times we may fall, we trust in His mercy. we all get lost at times, but our direction continues to be with God in Jesus Christ. Your will be done. my day off gives me more time to be with Him, in prayer, in the Eucharist, and in the Sacrament of Reconciliation as the penitent. time is not always on our hands, however - as Mick would say. in yesterday's Gospel, our Lord mentions that those who ate and drank with him may not be invited inside. the Gospel reminds that salvation is ours, but that we must take the time to "strive to enter through the narrow door", take time to smile at our neighbours, listen to them and to God in prayer. love God, love neighbour = culture of life. peace out.

ps: St. Augustine has some thoughts on Time. it's another thing on my to-do list.

pss: i'm off to 101 Parent tonight, since it'll be a difficult but interesting talk.

psss: it's no longer a tie! The Lion King is winning over Lord of the Rings.
