Watch, for you do not know when the master of the house will come, in the evening, or at midnight, or at cockcrow, or in the morning, lest he come suddenly and find you asleep. Mark 13:35, 36
Watch and be ready.
We learn in Advent, once again, the call to watchfulness. To being awake, to being attentive. To being mindful of the moment. The moment is too important for "multi-tasking," too important for distractions. The only way to prepare for this watchfulness is to practice mindful prayer, contemplation of this very moment, and openness to what life has for us now.
