FAITH BOOK

2nd SUNDAY OF ADVENT (B) December 6, 2020

Isaiah 40: 1-5, 9-11; Psalm 85; 2 Peter 3: 8-14; Mark 1: 1-8

by 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 God.
Every valley shall be filled in,
every mountain and hill shall be made low.

Reflection:


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 need filling in?

  • What mountains and obstacles to God need leveling?

  • What rough edges need smoothing?
