Matthew 24

“But about that day and hour no one knows, neither the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. “


From Thomas Merton, Cistercian monk…when asked, while working in the field, “What would you do if you knew that you were to die tomorrow?” Merton answered, “I would keep on hoeing.” Merton reminds us of the importance of living our life with the understanding that any day, any moment could be our last…and living our life to do what matters most to us, and to God.


Questions for reflection:

If you knew that you were to die tomorrow, what would you do…right now?
