December 8, 2019: Reflection for the Second Sunday of Advent

by Rita Melgares, Notre Dame Associate
Matthew 3:1-12
In this Sunday’s Gospel, we are reminded of John the Baptist’s message:

Turn from your sins
Turn to God
For the Kingdom of Heaven
Is coming soon

John the Baptist calls for a change of heart and conduct – a turning of one’s life from rebellion to obedience toward God.

Take time during this second week of Advent to reflect on where you are on this repentance journey.

Are you ready to turn from rebellion to obedience?

Remember, repentance brings us to the promise of a new beginning.
