Homily for Saturday of the 2nd Week of Advent

Theme: LET US CONTINUE PREPARING THE WAY FOR HE IS COMING SOON!

Homily for Saturday December 11 2021

*READINGS OF THE DAY*
Ecclesiasticus 48:1-4,9-12
Psalm 79,2-3,15-16,18-19
Matthew 17:10-13

*INTRODUCTION*
Dear brethrens, today, we see Jesus talking with his disciples as they are coming down from the mountain, where they have just lived the Transfiguration. Our Lord hasn’t taken up Peter’s suggestion that they stay, and is answering the questions of the disciples as they descend. Those, who have just partaken momentarily in the glory of God, are surprised and don’t understand how the Messiah could have come without the prophet Elijah coming first to prepare everything.

*WHAT WE LEARN FROM THE READINGS OF TODAY*
Dear brothers and sisters, Advent is a time when we are invited to become more attuned to the various ways that the Lord comes to us. Very often he comes to us in ways that forces us to rethink who we are and where we stand. We can be tempted to reject the Lord’s messenger as John the Baptist was rejected by many of his contemporaries. Our resistance can sometimes be a sign that the Lord is trying to break through to us in some new way.

*CONCLUSION*
We ask the Mother of Jesus, Queen of the Apostles, to intercede so that no one will be lacking a friend who, like the prophets, will bring them the Good News of salvation that is brought to us through the birth of Jesus Christ. We have the mission, you and me, to make sure that this Christmas be experienced in a more Christian way by those people who cross their path with ours.
THE LORD BE WITH YOU!
