Saturday December 16
Second Week of Advent
Jesus is here
  • Sirach 48:1-4,9-11
  • Psalm 80: 2-3,15-16,18-19
  • Matthew 17:9-13

We are called to repent and experience a conversion of heart. We read about the miracles performed by one of the greatest prophets in the Old Testament. The miracles and wonders that happened when prophet Elijah spoke were unimaginable. However, the greatest miracle is a coversion of heart. It is possible only through an encounter with the Risen Lord Jesus. When we see him and receive the power of the Holy Spirit, we will be changed and renewed. The Holy Spirit is within us. Many people did not want to listen to John the Baptist who prepared the way for Jesus. They did not accept Jesus as the Messiah. Let us not be like them, instead let us allow the Holy Spirit to open our inner eyes and allow him to change our hearts on a daily basis. Then we will be able to experience the true joy of God’s presence in our lives. We will also be able to witness his glory and the power of his presence. “Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom”; let us enjoy this peace.

Prayer: Abba Father, open our eyes to see Jesus in our daily events. Amen.
