It is 06th December 2015. It is the second Week of the Advent. The readings are from Bar.5:1-9; Phil.1:4-6, 8-11 and the Gospel from Lk.3:1-6. The first reading assures God’s guiding support to God’s people. God promises the people of Israel that God will take care of the flattening of the mountains, filling the deep valleys and becoming their security and safety to reach God’s city. God is willing to inject hope into ourselves during this Advent when we are willing to remove the garments of corruption, sins, sadness, and disobedience. The responsorial Psalm praises, “The Lord has done great thing for us, we are filled with joy.” (Ps.126:3). In the second reading, St. Paul encourages through his personal prayer that the people of Philipi to be people of goodwill. We need to do our part being pure and blameless for the day of Christ. The Gospel invites us to return to the Lord with gratitude and repentance and willing to experience the abounding mercy of God. It is time to prepare the coming of Christ in our lives and communities. Letting go off the past grudges, anger, division, misunderstanding, hurts, pride and arrogance is the moment of grace of letting God into our lives. We must have a mindset that God will lead us home and to have happiness. When we walk with God, God takes care of every obstacle. When we walk alone selfishly, the clearing the obstacles become our anxiety-filled lives. “Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.” (Lk.3:4). May you have good day.
