With the Angels ....



"Why, Lord, leave us to stray from your ways and harden our hearts against fearing you?  Return, for the sake of your servants ...."  The words of Isiah in today's First Reading, speak loudly in today's world just as they did in his time.  It is too easy for us to lose our way, to lose sight of our goal.  It is too easy for us to follow the crowd instead of standing out as being different.  It is too easy for us to sin and sin, and sin again, and expect forgiveness, even without repentance.


Isiah worried for his people.  How can I speak and they listen?  What can we say or do that could change the heart of even one person?  Turn again we implore - help us, Lord, we need you.


Paul was so sure of his faith and his future that he was able to see the graces and gifts being lavished on his followers.  But Jesus says "Be on your guard".


Advent is a mixture of warnings and blessings, of apprehension and rejoicing, of the coming of the Christ-child and His Second Coming in judgement.


This is my Son, the beloved.  Listen to Him.








 


   

 



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
