We do not like to wait. Listening to a radio discussion recently about the ever increasing role technology plays in our lives, one panellist de-scribed how her smartphone had become al-most like an extension of her arm. We don’t know how to be alone or to have free time any-more, she lamented. If we’re waiting for a friend or family member, the slightest delay has us reaching for our phones to catch up on emails, social media or the latest news. Delayed flights, or food that doesn’t arrive promptly in a restaurant, can make us impatient and jittery. We have lost the art of waiting.

Yet Jesus regularly emphasises the importance of waiting. But it is clear that it is not the sort of waiting where we can sit around scrolling through our phones—there is an art to it. We must be awake and dressed for action and have our lamps lit, ready to go. We must be ready to open the door to the master when he knocks.

The ‘waiter’ described in today’s Gospel is a devoted servant, eagerly awaiting his master’s return. We don’t know when Jesus will return, but we are called to live in constant vigilance and readiness. Let us not be found asleep on the job, or distracting ourselves with the trivial things in life!
