Jude Siciliano, OP
Mini-reflections on the Sunday scripture readings
designed for persons on the run. "Faith Book" is
also brief enough to be posted in the Sunday parish
bulletins people take home.
From today’s Isaiah reading:
In the desert prepare the way of the Lord!
Make straight in the wasteland a highway for our
Every valley shall be filled in,
Every mountain and hill shall be made low
Advent invites us to clean up our act and straighten
things up. It is not a time to bargain or convince
God to act on our behalf. God is already well
disposed towards us and will help us "Prepare the
way of the Lord."
So, we ask ourselves:
What valleys and empty places in my
life needs filling in?
What mountains and obstacles to God
in my life needs leveling?
What rough edges need smoothing?
