“Repent! Repent! Repent! This is what I am asking you. The voice of repentance reaches up to the throne of My heavenly Father. It is the voice holding back the arm of justice of My Father.” (Jesus) (November 8, 1964 )

Today’s Readings: John the Baptist appeared, preaching in the desert of Judea
and saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand!”
It was of him that the prophet Isaiah had spoken when he said:
A voice of one crying out in the desert,
Prepare the way of the Lord,

make straight his paths. (Matthew 3)

Prayer Meditation- Lord today we are in the Second Sunday of Advent and all the readings point to the need to get ready, to repent, because the Kingdom of God is at hand! As we long for You Lord during this season of Advent help us to see where we need to repent- where we need to be purified. Is it food, drink, anger, worry, gossip, maybe despair? What is getting in the way of Your Grace, impeding it from flowing freely into our hearts? Open the eyes of our hearts Lord, that we may see and help us to make our crooked paths straight (Isaiah 45). Empty us of ourselves that we are ready to be filled with You this Christmas!
