THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
Preparing for the arrival of someone
important takes care and affection. Think of a family preparing to
welcome a loved one home from abroad, perhaps a son or daughter who
lives in Australia or someone who has been off
travelling the world. They get their bedroom ready, buy their favourite
foods, perhaps put up banners or even organise a welcome home party. It
is all done with great excitement and love, and is a way of easing the
path home for the traveller. Or imagine new parents preparing for the
arrival of a baby. There are practical considerations such as buying
nappies, and clothing, and getting a cot ready, and of course the nerves
and excitement as they prepare to welcome the new arrival.
On a larger scale, when an important
dignitary visits a venue or a country there is a flurry of activity in
preparation. We saw it in the painstaking arrangements made for the
visit of Pope Francis to Ireland earlier this year. Such high profile
visits often involve a literal
preparation of the way—organising a welcome reception, planning the best
route from the
airport, clearing the streets of traffic, as well as much chatter and
Today’s Gospel brings these two types of welcome to mind. During Advent,
we prepare for the coming of Jesus by our actions, when we are generous
with our time, patient with out families, and help those in need. And we
do all these things with excitement and love, so that Christ will find
the warmest of welcomes and a clear route in to our hearts.
