Prepare Our Hearts!
In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judea, ”Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
Christmas brings us back to the base, our hearts must be prepared to receive peace! Peace is a choice and it does not come from things.
Peace be with you!
This is a very important greeting and we do not use it enough and we certainly do not live it enough!
Repent from the things that keep us from peace!
This Second Sunday of Advent, let us remember, even in all of the shopping we must do, and in all the parties that we partake of, and in all the hours we spend in the kitchen preparing wonderful delicious meals, that we need to receive peace in our hearts! We must give ourselves the time to receive Jesus. We must find the time to pray, read Scripture and to love one another!
We need Christmas, and the only way to receive it, is to stop the frenzy and allow the heart to be open to receive the peace that Jesus brings!
Happy Second Sunday of Advent!
