FAITH BOOK

1st SUNDAY OF ADVENT -A-  December 1, 2019

Isaiah 2: 1-5; Psalm 122; Romans 13: 11-14; Matthew 24: 37-44

By Jude Siciliano, OP

 

Mini-reflections on the Sunday scripture readings designed for persons on the run. "Faith Book" is also brief enough to be posted in the Sunday parish bulletins people take home.

 

From today’s Gospel reading:

 

Jesus said to his disciples:

"Therefore stay awake!

For you do not know on which day your Lord will come."

 

Reflection:

 

As we begin Advent we are asked to reflect on Christ’s "second coming." Not just reflect, but live in ways that show we expect his return and are doing what we must to prepare for him when he does come. If we are people who tend to put things off the gospel has an urgency about it, to stir us to action now.

 

So we ask ourselves:

 

  • What disruptive and wasteful patterns must we address during this Advent time of preparation for Christ?

  • In the spirit of Advent how are we looking for Christ in our daily lives?
