Pilgrims on the Journey: waiting for that auspicious day of the coming of Jesus
The beauty of life is that we are a pilgrim people on the journey and we do not know when Jesus will come to take us. St. Mark has expressed it eloquently: “But about that day or hour no one knows, neither the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father” (Mk 13: 32). The disciples of Jesus were also curious to know when He was going to come back but Jesus responded saying that it was not for them to know the times or seasons which are in the Father’s authority. We are well aware that Jesus is going to come again but what we are not sure is when that auspicious moment, hour or day is.
