Second Sunday of Advent

A World Cup metaphor

Dear sisters and brothers in Christ,

The season of Advent is a time of preparation for Christmas, but it is also a time to prepare for the second coming of Christ. As this season progresses, our attention shifts from the second coming to the first. In that process we take time to contemplate St. John the Baptist, the Precursor of the Lord, who invites us in the Gospel passage proclaimed this Sunday, to prepare our hearts for the coming of Christ, going resolutely forward down a path of conversion.

Conversion is always a process and a need for all of us. It is a lifelong road that may know of important landmarks, yet it is always a journey in which we must go forward. The road to holiness follows an ascending path. We either go forward or slide back down, but we can never remain static in one place.

To be able to advance on this journey, one must first acknowledge one’s need for redemption and healing. We must call things for what they are, without excuses or deceptions. Therein lies the great importance of individual conscience.
