“You also must be prepared, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.” (Matthew 24:44) .
Reflection: The word “Advent” means “coming,” and the season focuses on the coming of Christ at the end of time, and then on his first coming at Christmas. The joy of Advent is joined by a strong warning that we must be prepared for his coming. Promoting justice and human rights is a key element of our preparation. A society that aborts its children is not prepared for the coming of Christ.
Prayer: Come, Lord Jesus. May we be prepared to welcome you by welcoming all human life. Amen.
