Third Sunday of Advent

Weekend of December 10/11, 2022
From the loneliness of his prison cell John the Baptist asks
of Jesus: “Are you the one who is to come, or should we
look for another?” The weeks before Christmas offer much
to be joyous about, celebrating with family and friends,
the glitter of seasonal decorations, the excitement of gift
giving and receiving. But in our midst there are the lonely
and neglected, the poor, the hospitalized, the wayward,
the shut-ins. There are those who feel that they have no
hope. To whom should they look? Discipleship in the
Lord includes being good stewards of others. Are there
those in our family, our neighborhood, our community to
whom we can reach out to show them a sign of Christ’s
presence in their midst?
