Gospel | Luke 12:32-40

[Jesus said:] “Do not be afraid, little flock,
for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give
you the kingdom. Sell your possessions,
and give alms. Make purses for yourselves
that do not wear out, an unfailing treasure
in heaven, where no thief comes near and
no moth destroys. For where your treasure
is, there your heart will be also. “Be
dressed for action and have your lamps lit;
be like those who are waiting for their
master to return from the wedding
banquet, so that they may open the door
for him as soon as he comes and knocks.
Blessed are those slaves whom the master
finds alert when he comes; truly I tell you,
he will fasten his belt and have them sit
down to eat, and he will come and serve
them. If he comes during the middle of the
night, or near dawn, and finds them so,
blessed are those slaves. “But know this: if
the owner of the house had known at what
hour the thief was coming, he would not
have let his house be broken into. You also
must be ready, for the Son of Man is
coming at an unexpected hour.”
