The question isn’t whether God will recognise us or not. Of course he will. Will he recognise us as his disciples, that’s the real issue. The Lord will look, in the imagery of this Sunday’s Gospel, to see if our lamps are lighting. The lamp is the lamp of love. Love, to be genuine, doesn’t have to be extraordinary. Love is evident in the small things of life. What, do you think, are signs of love as we negotiate our way through a pandemic?
