Sharpen Our Swords

A wild boar was busily sharpening his tusks against a tree in the forest when a fox came by. 

“Why are you wasting your time in this manner?”  asked the fox.  “Neither a hunter nor a hound is in sight and no danger is at hand.”

“True enough," replied the boar, “but when the danger does arise, I shall have something else to do than to sharpen my weapons.”

Moral: It’s too late to sharpen the sword when the trumpet sounds.

We’re getting close to the end of our liturgical year when the trumpet will sound (so to speak).    Before the end, let’s sharpen our swords through many acts of kindness and generosity we must wield on behalf of Christ.
