For Your Reflection: 

 

SECOND SUNDAY IN ADVENT
DECEMBER 4,2022
Theme:
At the heart of our Advent preparation stands John the Baptist, who calls us to repent and make a new beginning. As the darkness increases we turn toward the approaching light of Christ. For Christians he is the root of Jesse, the righteous judge who welcomes all, especially the poor and meek of the earth. We wait with hope for that day when the wolf will dwell with the lamb, and there will be no more hurt of destruction. From the Lord’s table we are sent in the spirt of John the Baptist to proclaim that in Christ the kingdom of God has come near.
