Nowadays, many houses have security systems. We can have our homes monitored, 24 hours a day, to make sure they are safe. The really advanced systems even allow us to tap into the cameras from our mobile phones. We don’t have to stay awake all night in case someone tries to burgle our home – the system takes care of everything. There are so many technologies available whose focus is to help us be prepared for all eventualities; we have apps for everything from predicting the weather to alerting us to traffic delays.

There are no such luxuries in the parables. The men who are waiting for their master to return from the wedding feast cannot afford to sleep. They won’t receive an alert to their phone when their master arrives home. They have no option but to wait up. In the short parable of the householder and the burglar, Jesus again emphasises the importance of "standing ready"

Of course, Jesus is not really talking about watchmen and burglars, or being physically pre-pared; he is talking, rather, about spiritual alertness. It might seem morbid, but ask yourself this: if you were to die tonight, would you be ready? Your answer might tell you something about the areas of your life that need work. Another way in which we can be "ever-ready" is to be open to the Holy Spirit. When our hearts are alert and open, we are more likely to see God’s goodness in those we meet, and be ready to welcome his grace into our lives.

We could not imagine being without our gadgets and apps and all the things that make our lives easier. Valuable though they are, there is something more valuable – indeed priceless – at stake.

-Tríona Doherty
