Sunday Worship — "Lord Keep Us Watchful of our Triumph!"

Today the Church hears strains of the distant triumph song and affirms,“Blessed are they who are called to the marriage feast of the Lamb.” Jesus wants us to be the waiting Church —the Church that watches for her Savior and cries, “Come, Lord Jesus!” As we journey through these last days, however, our vigilance slips, and our hearts grow drowsy because the bridegroom seems to be taking so long. So while we wait, the Church prays,“Keep us ever watchful for the coming of your Son that we may sit with him and all your holy ones at the marriage feast in heaven.”
