SUNDAY OF ADVENT
Isaiah 2: 1-5; Psalm 122; Romans 13: 11-14; Matthew 24: 37-44
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.
today’s Romans reading:
Brothers and sisters: You know the time;
it is the hour now for you to wake from sleep.
Paul believes in the promise God has made to us in Christ. If we wake up, he
tells us, we can trust God will act decisively in the future. In fact, if we
open our eyes we can see God has already begun to heal our brokenness, forgive
our sins and, we believe, overcome death
we ask ourselves:
While we wait for Christ’s return how do you experience his
presence now in your life?
What are the works of darkness Paul warns us about?
How can we follow his advice and “Put on the Lord Jesus?”
