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.
