THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
The Second Sunday of Advent turns our attention to John the Baptist.
John was an interesting individual. We are told he dressed a bit
strangely, had an odd diet and spent a lot of time in the desert. Yet it
seems he was very popular with the whole of Judaea and ’all the people
of Jerusalem’ went out to hear him. John must have been a dynamic
speaker and one whom people found hope and inspiration. Who are these
attractive messengers for us today? Who brings us good news and hope?
Who do we flock to hear?
Today we might also reflect on the messengers in our own lives. Who
did God send to you while you were in your own wilderness? Perhaps they
brought with them a moment of grace reassuring you that you would not be
drifting at that moment in your own life stated the contrary, yet these
words of encouragement or comfort gave you reason to hope and to hang in
These ’John the Baptists’ are messengers of the light. They are all
around us. Sometimes we are the ones called upon to be a messenger of
light for someone else. The good news of the gospel today is that even
in times of desolation there is a hope, a promise that urges us on. How
we prepare for this journey determines our experience.
