Pastor's Corner

Second Sunday of Advent

December 10, 2017

In today’s first reading, the prophet exhorts preachers to speak from the depths of their hearts, for they have heard the news that set all people free. This joyful announcement is cause for celebration by all of Judah, for it proclaims that God will be made present and accompany them forever. John the Baptist, the precursor of the coming of the Savior of the world, makes the same announcement in today’s Gospel.

He proclaims that the savior will bring joy to the people and transform all things. As Saint Peter proclaims in today’s second reading, the Lord has come to transform the world and bring about a new heaven and a new earth, rooted in the hearts of all believers. This season, examine the texts of the readings, especially those selected for Sundays, in light of the pastoral reality of the faithful in your community. Identity the themes (such as “waiting” and “joy” that can help to cultivate faith of the congregation.

Ask yourselves: what do these mean for us this Advent.?
