Reflection from Fr. Taylor: December 17, 2017, 3rd Sunday of Advent

Isaiah 61:1-2,10-11     1 Thessalonians 5:16-24     John 1:6-8, 19-28

In today’s Gospel John makes it clear that he is not Jesus Christ, but he comes to prepare for Him. “I am the voice of one crying out in the desert make straight the way of the Lord” this is the voice that is needed so much in our world. We are called to profess the truth, decency and love of one another. We are called to stress morality, and doing of the right thing toward each other.

One thing that all of us can do is use this next couple of weeks to reach out to many in need and make their life a little better. Maybe we can patch up a quarrel that we have had with somebody. If there is something in our life that doesn’t belong there maybe we should put it at the top of our resolutions for next year.

This Sunday also is often referred to as rejoice Sunday and how could we not possibly rejoice in thinking of what we are preparing for. We can not change the whole world but we can change ourselves, our attitude and how we live. If we meet a mountain or valley in our life we can level them. We can rise above them.

May you continue to be blessed during this Holy time. May you continue to have a Holy and Peace-filled Advent Season
