2nd Sunday Advent

During the liturgy for the 2nd Sunday of Advent in Year A, the first reading  is taken from Isaiah 11:1-10 and the Gospel reading is from Matthew 3:1-12.

Both readings offer rich images and invitations calling us to prepare a way for God’s coming by continually expanding our vision and turning around our lives to truly become more compassionate and caring.

As we make time for reflection in the busyness of these weeks leading up to Christmas, the following reflection by Veronica Lawson RSM is offered to enrich and extend the focus of our prayer as well as our responses to God’s call in daily living.
