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!

VOCATION PRAYER

O God, Father of all Mercies,
Provider of a bountiful Harvest, send Your Graces upon those
You have called to gather the fruits of Your labor;
preserve and strengthen them in their lifelong service of you.
Open the hearts of Your children
that they may discern Your Holy Will;
inspire in them a love and desire to surrender themselves
to serving others in the name of Your son, Jesus Christ.
Teach all Your faithful to follow their respective paths in life
guided by Your Divine Word and Truth.
Through the intercession of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary,
all the Angels, and Saints, humbly hear our prayers
and grant Your Church’s needs, through Christ, our Lord. Amen.
