Post from December 7th: The days of Advent scintillate with one luminous message: God Himself will come to save us! Today’s First Reading paints a vivid picture in which all nature rejoices at the coming of the Lord. The desert blooms with abundant flowers, streams burst forth into pools for animals to drink. The highway is readied for the Messiah, and all along this holy way people rejoice and sing.
Today turn someone’s desert into a garden, transform someone’s lameness to leaping, be a friend to bring others to Our Lord. God Himself will come, but it’s nice to know that God permits us to prepare the way.
