Second Sunday of Advent – December 3/4, 2022

Hope is a prominent theme in the readings of this second week of this new liturgical year. Isaiah presents a hope-filled picture of the Kingdom that Christ came to establish, and St. Paul reminds us that the scriptures we hear give us a reason to be hopeful. “Whatever was previously written …was for our instruction. . . that by endurance and encouragement, we might have hope.” A good way to prepare for Christ’s coming is to carve out a few minutes each day this week to re-read these readings, being attentive to the encouragement and hope God is holding out to you. Is there someone in your life with whom you can extend God’s reassurance and hope?
