2nd SUN­DAY OF AD­VENT Ps 126:1-2, 2-3, 4-5, 6

1st Read­ing: Bar 5:1-9 2nd Read­ing: Phil 1:4-6, 8-11 Gospel: Lk 3:1-6

Ev­ery hu­man be­ing will see the sal­va­tion of God, we are told. But will ev­ery hu­man be­ing choose the same? What good is re­ceiv­ing a gift if the re­cip­i­ent re­fuses to use it? It is one thing for God to of­fer us His sal­va­tion, but the onus is on us to pre­pare our­selves to re­ceive the same and profit from it. John‘s in­vi­ta­tion to peo­ple is not to miss the amaz­ing ad­vent of God‘s sal­va­tion, but to pre­pare them­selves as­sid­u­ously to re­ceive the same with max­i­mal ef­fect.
