|SECOND SUNDAY OF ADVENT
Reflection: Prepare the way of the Lord, make straight the path! We hear the voice of John the Baptist calling us to prepare our hearts to greet the Lord. “Reform your lives, the reign of God is at hand,” he says. In other words, straighten out your crooked ways and make your rough places smooth. You too are a herald of God’s reign. Make peace, give comfort, be patient. Cry out with your deeds: “Our God is coming! Prepare the way.”
Light two purple candles.
Scripture: “May God, the source of all patience and encouragement, enable you to live in perfect harmony with one another according to the spirit of Christ Jesus, so that with one heart and voice you may glorify God”
Prayer: Jesus, you are the light of the world. May the fire of your love burn away our sins. May it help us to prepare the way for you by being kind, forgiving and fair.
Response: Come, Lord Jesus!
