The Second Sunday of Advent
"As it is written in the prophet Isaiah,
'See, I am sending my messenger
ahead of you,
Who will prepare your way ...' "
Mark 1: 2
Reflecting on the text
Who are God's messengers today? What are God's messages today?
Why are the prophets so important to the story of Jesus Christ?
Who has prepared your way, going ahead to make a path?
Lighting the candles
Light the first and second candles (purple) on the Advent wreath,
giving thanks for those who go when sent, and who open our eyes and ears to the coming of Christ among us.
