Isaiah cries out to the Lord with feeling, "Oh, that you would rend the heavens and come down"! Thanks be to God, we know the Lord has come down to us. God is, in fact, still present among us in the Eucharist and in every created thing. Yet, like Saint Paul, we know Jesus promises to come again; we await that mysterious, final revelation in fellowship with Jesus and one another. Even in the best of Christian communities, however, waiting can be dreary and difficult. Mark's Gospel gets our adrenaline flowing: "Be watchful! Be alert!" Although we have the enormous consolation of knowing Jesus already saved the world by his death and resurrection, we must ask the Spirit to rouse us to prayer and service as together we watch for Jesus.
