THE LORD'S DAY
SECOND SUNDAY OF ADVENT

Daily Bread

From Today's Office
I wait for the LORD, my soul waits, and in his word I put my hope.
Psalm 130:5
Meditation
What are the big things we wait for? The ability to love in a deeper way? The time when we won’t fall into the same old traps we always do? A new vision for our lives? A change of heart? Is there a way we have these, even as we wait for them?
—Mark Villano, Time to Get Ready, Paraclete Press
Prayer of the Day for Eucharist

Heavenly Father, once again in Advent we hear the voice of John calling us to prepare a way for the Lord. Help me by your Holy Spirit, to remove those impediments in my life that block my path to your Son. Amen.
