Second Sunday of AdventThis weekend we celebrate the Second Sunday of Advent. The Gospel reading centers on the preaching and message of John the Baptist. John, the cousin of Jesus, announces the coming of the Lord and reminds us to be prepared to celebrate his birth. In these crazy and hectic days of Christmas shopping, baking, decorating and festivities, don’t forget to take time to be still, to be quiet, to be at peace and ask the Lord to enter in. “Jesus is the reason for the season” and we can quickly forget that amidst the hustle and bustle of preparing for his birth. This is a wonderful season of joy and gratitude, expectation and preparation. Let us be mindful of that focus.
