Daily Reflection – Dec 9, 2015
Wednesday 9 December 2015
First Reading: Isaiah 40:25-31
O bless the Lord, my soul
Psalm 102(103):1-4, 8, 10
Behold, the Lord comes to save his people;
blessed are those prepared to meet him.
Gospel Reading: Matthew 11:28-30
Today’s Note: Wednesday of the Second Week of Advent
Jesus said to the crowds:
“Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened,
and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke upon you and learn from me,
for I am meek and humble of heart;
and you will find rest for yourselves.
For my yoke is easy, and my burden light.”
“The Lord is coming and will not delay. God will bring every hidden thing to light and reveal God’s own self to every nation.”
How do you feel about Christ’s coming? As infant, as Eucharistic self-gift, as cosmic Christ, coming on the clouds? Where do you find Christ hidden in your daily relationships, activities? Try to imagine how God will reveal Christ to every nation. Pray for all who are afraid of being exposed.
Thank you for revealing yourself through Jesus. Thank you for the light he brings to our darkness and that of so many nations: sin, violence, war, greed. Show us our sin.
