Today, the Second Sunday of Advent, sees us continuing on the Advent journey, listening to John the Baptist’s call to conversion sounding out loud and clear. It is a pressing invitation to open our hearts and to welcome the Son of God Who comes among us to make Divine Love manifest.
Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI said: “Through the Gospel, John the Baptist continues to speak down the centuries to each generation. His hard clear words bring health to us, the men and women of this day, when even the experience and perception of Christmas often, unfortunately, reflects materialist attitudes. The ‘voice’ of the great prophet asks us to prepare the way for the coming Lord in the deserts of today, internal and external deserts, thirsting for the water of life which is Christ.” So, we come to receive the water of life as we receive the Lord, spiritually or sacramentally in the Blessed Sacrament in communion.
Mass today will be at 10.00am and you are welcome to join us online.
