3rd SUNDAY OF ADVENT (B) December 17, 2017

Isaiah 61:1-2a, 10-11; I Thess. 5: 16-24; John 1: 6-8, 19-28

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 Gospel reading:

A man named John was sent from God.

He came for testimony to testify to the light,

so that all might believe through him.


Like John the Baptist, our job description as Christians is to give witness to Jesus, the Light of the world. And like him, we may have to suffer the consequences of our witnessing – being treated severely, or just being ignored and shrugged off.

So we ask ourselves:

  • How am I a "voice" that prepares for Christ’s coming?

  • How have I had to suffer when I have given witness of my faith to others?
