“Preparation In the Hope of Receiving Christ!

“A voice cries in the wilderness; prepare a way for the Lord. Make a straight way for our God across the desert. Let every valley be filled in, every mountain and hill be laid low…”(Ish 40, 3; Mk 1, 3; Jh 1, 23). On this second week of Advent, we continue our waiting and preparation for the Lord’s coming.

All our readings this week focus on the following themes, the imminence of the Lord's coming and arrival, the need for repentance for the forgiveness of our sins, and of course the need to live saintly, holy and spotless lives. These are geared towards making sure that we are fully prepared for the glorious encounter with our Lord and King, Jesus Christ. One important question that we must ask ourselves today is: Why is Christ coming, what are all these talks about his coming for? The answer is simple: He is coming because he loves us, he is coming to forgive, console, and to save us, and he is coming to make all things new. He is not just a busy body who has nothing to do at home and goes about gossiping or mending in other people's affairs. No, he has a mission and that mission is all about us and our world.

This Advent is the time to say, God we are sorry, forgive us for we have sinned! This is a very important condition for us to welcome Christ worthily, and this is what the prophets Isaiah, John the Baptist, and the Prince of the Apostles Peter mean respectively by, "preparing a way for the Lord" and "living holy and saintly lives." If we sincerely repent this season, then the salvation that Jesus brings will be ours, and we will be part of the new generation that he comes to transform and redeem by his love. Let this holy season of advent change our lives and make us to prepare the way for the baby Jesus. God bless you all.

Note: Any family who is interested in Homebound daytime or family prayer at home in the evening hours, you are most welcome to approach me. I am available for your spiritual need to reach out your home. Thank you.
