SECOND SUNDAY OF ADVENT!

I welcome you to this Second Sunday of Advent, the season that prepares us for the coming of our Lord. We reflect on the prophecy of Isaiah regarding a messenger that would be sent to announce the coming of the Lord. This messenger is none other than John the Baptist, the voice that cried out in the desert: "Prepare the way of the Lord, make straight his paths." John the Baptist was more than a prophet. He had the voice and spirit of God within him. He spoke with courage and his message was strong because it was about how soon the Messiah would come. His message gave people the hope and consolation that they needed. Now that we have come to the second Sunday of Advent, let us make use of every opportunity, so that the Lord may find us ready. Let us straighten the paths that need to be straightened as we learn from the humility of John the Baptist.

Happy Sunday!
