The 4th Sunday of Advent this year is just a day before Christmas and that does not seem to leave us enough time to reflect and try to live by its invitations and challenges before the D-day. However, it is also interesting that we have to, in some hours, celebrate the birth of Our Saviour that we have been preparing for the past weeks.

“A voice cries in the wilderness: ‘Prepare a way for the Lord; make His path straight.’”

As we gather around the Eucharistic Table of the Lord to celebrate this Second Sunday of Advent, I love to share this poem titled: If Jesus came to your house written by Lois Blanchard Eades:

IF JESUS CAME TO YOUR HOUSE

SOLEMNITY OF CHRIST, THE UNIVERSAL KING

THE KING AS A SHEPHERD

“I was hungry you gave Me to eat …When you did this for the least of your brothers, you did it for Me”

“To the one he gave five talents, to another two, to a third one; each in proportion to his ability.”

A friend shared this brief note with my via WhatsApp and I love to share it with us as we reflect on the Readings of this 33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time:

“Nothing in nature lives for itself.

Rivers don’t drink their own water.
