CONFESSION, THE BEST PREPARATION FOR CHRISTMAS

Liturgical Colour: 

Luke 3:10-18

Once again John the Baptist can help us in our preparation for meeting Christ this Christmas Day, just as he helped his contemporaries to prepare for Jesus’ coming. His preaching was so effective that it made many people, even tax collectors and soldiers, ask him how they could be ready for the Messiah. Now he is asking each of us today, 'What preparations are you making for the coming of Jesus this Christmas?'

JOHN THE BAPTIST PREPARES US FOR CHRISTMAS

Liturgical Colour: 

Is: 61:1-2,10-11; I Thess: 5:16-24; Jn: 1:6-8,19-28

In the Old Testament, God our loving Father, carefully and gradually revealed news about the coming of our Redeemer. When the time was imminent, He sent John the Baptist who, when he appeared in the wilderness and told people to ‘make a straight way for the Lord,’ awakened echoes of the promised Redeemer throughout the land. It brought all kinds of people - Pharisees and Sadducees, outcast publicans and semi-heathen soldiers among them – who forgot their differences to come and listen to him.

ALL IN GOD'S GOOD TIME

Liturgical Colour: 

James 5:7-10 & Mt. 11:2-11.

Waiting can sometimes be one of the hardest things in life. If we are expecting something bad to happen, we want it to be over and done with quickly. If we're expecting something good, we are impatient for it to happen.
