Advent Two ....

 

 

Our First Readings throughout Advent come from the greatest of the Prophets and one of the major witnesses of the Messianic hope in Israel - Isaiah.  He was a man of great vision, ability and political influence whose message is stamped by the majesty, holiness, and glory of the Lord.


Isaiah's prophecies concerning Emmanuel have earned him the title of the Fifth Evangelist.  He urges his hearers to trust in their omnipotent God and to live accordingly.  Justice and righteousness, teaching and word, and assurance of Divine blessing upon the faithful - and punishment upon the faithless - are recurrent themes in his message from the Holy One of Israel to a proud and stubborn people.


Isaiah reminds us that God is just and holy; he abhors sin and has put in motion a Divine plan to overcome it centering around the teachings and deeds of His Incarnate Son.  All who remain faithful and live according to the Covenant made in His Son Jesus will escape sin- for Jesus came in the flesh to be the sole bringer of salvation.






 


   

 



Let nothing trouble you

let nothing frighten you

everything passes,

God never changes

patience obtains all

whoever has God wants for nothing

God alone is sufficient.

                                                  

                                                       St Teresa of Auila
