St. Thomas Aquinas, Priest and Doctor of the Church

Heb 9:15, 24-28

For this reason he is the mediator of a new covenant, so that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance, because a death has occurred that redeems them from the transgressions under the first covenant. For Christ did not enter a sanctuary made by human hands, a mere copy of the true one, but he entered into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God on our behalf.

Nor was it to offer himself again and again, as the high priest enters the Holy Place year after year with blood that is not his own; for then he would have had to suffer again and again since the foundation of the world. But as it is, he has appeared once for all at the end of the age to remove sin by the sacrifice of himself.

And just as it is appointed for mortals to die once, and after that the judgment, so Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin, but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him.

Eagerly waiting

I spend all of Advent preparing for the Christmas arrival of the baby Jesus. It’s a season of waiting and anticipating this wonderful thing that is to come.  Today, weeks after Advent and Christmas have finished, the words at the end of this reading.. “eagerly waiting” … strike a chord. Aren’t I already done waiting for this year?  Christmas has already come!

Christmas comes and goes too quickly.  Preparations lead to busyness and then too quickly back to normal life.  What I hear in today’s reading is that the feeling of waiting…of knowing that something amazing is still to come… is not just a feeling to be coveted in Advent, but rather should be our daily disposition throughout the year.  This disposition calls me to work each day to prepare my heart and my life for the promise of Jesus’ return. How can you prepare your heart today for Jesus?

Prayer

Jesus,

My days fly by too quickly.
I don’t always make time for you.  
Help me to remember
that every day
is a day of anticipation
for your return and my salvation.

Amen.
