First Sunday of Advent

This Weeks Readings: Isaiah 2.1-5; Psalm 122; Romans 13.11-14; Matthew 24.37-44.

As the first word of Advent, Christ tells us, "Stay awake: You must be prepared." The unprepared people "in the days of Noah" were distracted by their "eating and drinking," oblivious to the imminent flood. In what does Advent preparation consist? Putting on the Lord Jesus Christ through faith. "Encountering Christ, letting [ourselves] be caught up in and guided by his love, enlarges the horizons of existence, gives it a firm hope which will not disappoint. Faith is no refuge for the fainthearted, but something which enhances our lives. It makes us aware of a magnificent calling, the vocation of love... Faith is a lamp which guides our steps in the night and suffices for the journey" (Lumen Fidei, 53). "Let us walk in the light of the Lord!' (Magnificat - December 2019)  read more »
