God is meeting us so as to redeem us.

2nd Sunday of Advent Year (B)

Isa. 40: 1-5; 9-11; Psalm 84; 2 Ptr. 3: 8-14; Mark 1: 1-8

Read: “Prepare a way for the Lord; make a straight pathway for Him”.

Pray: At times we have put God aside and kept Him away from our life, from the surroundings where we live, work, study, recreate ourselves. During this advent let us ask God to come back to us because we need Him more than ever before.

Reflect: The call being made to us during this Advent: “Prepare a way for the Lord; make a straight pathway for him” means that God is expecting us to open wide our heart to Him. Preparing a way for the Lord means the need to prepare oneself for a meeting with love. The call to prepare a way for the Lord is not the way that enables one to take oneself to the Lord, but one that opens the way to God to come again to that person.

 Act: God is meeting us so as to redeem us. In His name let us hasten to bring more justice and an improvement in all aspects of our life.
