The Dominican Friars offer this second meditation on the Scriptures for this Advent season

This Sunday we hear the voice of John the Baptist crying out, calling us to prepare the way of the Lord. Pope John Paul II says, “The entire Liturgy of Advent echoes the Precursor, inviting us to encounter Christ who comes to save us. We are preparing to commemorate the birth which took place in Bethlehem 2,000 years ago; we renew our faith in his glorious coming at the end of time. At the same time, we prepare to recognize his presence among us:  indeed, he also visits us through the people and events of daily life.” The prophetic cry of the herald of Christ echoes through the centuries, calling us to make ready our hearts, today!
