In the Gospel today,
John the Baptist tells us to prepare the way of the Lord. He is talking not
about the baby in the manger but about the adult Christ soon to begin his
public ministry. Take time to read commentary about
the prayers and readings for the Second Sunday of Advent.
Take a few minutes to reflect on today's readings by practicing the ancient art of Lectio Divina.
Churches around the nation held a special
collection for retired religious today. Pray for these dedicated servants of Christ.
