Second Sunday of Advent - December 4

PREPARE THE WAY

Saint John the Baptist appears on the scene today as Advent enters its second week. The mysterious consumer of locusts and wild honey, John echoes the words of the prophet Isaiah as he calls for repentance in the face of the nearness of the kingdom of heaven. The rhythms of the Christian life are often confounding. Each year we meet the Baptist and hear his calls for repentance. Each year we see him pointing to the one who is coming after him, the Lord Jesus. Yet each year the words and actions of John the Baptist echo anew in our hearts, because we have fallen into old sinful traps again and again. Advent gives us the opportunity once again to turn away from our sinful ways and embrace the gospel way of life. John the Baptist invites us to prepare the way for the Lord, in whom we place our hope.

Reflexion del la Esccritura de Hoy -  diciembre 4

Segundo Domingo de Adviento
DE COMÚN ACUERDO

Hoy nos enfrentamos al problema de la división: nuestro mundo dividido, nuestro país dividido, nuestra Iglesia dividida. La ira y la hostilidad entre hermanos y hermanas hacen que estos rivalicen, cada uno está seguro que sus ideas son las correctas y que las de los demás no funcionan. Ni habíamos visto tanta división en nuestro país desde la Guerra Civil, ni desde la Segunda Guerra Mundial habíamos visto problemas de hostilidad hacia los refugiados en Europa y en nuestro propio país. Los cristianos están divididos y se ven uno al otro con sospecha y hostilidad. Pero este no es el camino de Dios. Juan el Bautista trata reciamente a los fariseos y los saduceos que acuden a bautizarse. "¿Quién les advirtió escapar del castigo inminente? . . . Aún ahora el hacha está puesta sobre la raíz de los árboles. Por lo que aquél árbol que no dé fruto será cortado y arrojado al fuego" (Mateo 3:7, 10). Él anuncia la venida de Jesús quien "reunirá el trigo en un granero y la paja la arrojará al fuego eterno" (Mateo 3:12). Esta es advertencia bastante clara

Today’s Scripture Reflection

In the Gospel passage from St. Matthew, St. John the Baptist declares, among other things, “Prepare the way of the Lord; make straight his paths.” Isn’t that a sign to us of what Advent means to us? Are you familiar with roads in the world that are filled with curves and hills? Depending on your age, you may be familiar with efforts to straighten those roads, perhaps even to build tunnels through those hills, so the journey is less treacherous and threatening.
