Revelation 22:20

He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!

Christ comes as our neighbor, especially our weak, wounded or poor neighbor.  He comes in the Eucharist and the other sacraments.  He comes in any gesture of charity.  He comes when two or three are gathered in his name.  He comes for us at death.  And he will supremely come at the end of time to judge the world.  Come, Lord Jesus!
