    What Do We Do? Scott Hahn Reflects on the Third Sunday of Advent

    What Do We Do? Scott Hahn Reflects on the Third Sunday of Advent

    The people in today’s Gospel are “filled with expectation.” They believe John the Baptist might be the messiah they’ve been waiting for. Three times we hear their question: “What then should we do?”

    The messiah’s coming requires every man and woman to choose—to “repent” or not. That’s John’s message and it will be Jesus’ too (see Luke 3:3; 5:32; 24:47).

    El camino a casa: Scott Hahn reflexiona sobre el 2º Domingo de Adviento

    El camino a casa: Scott Hahn reflexiona sobre el 2º Domingo de Adviento

    El salmo de hoy nos pinta un escenario de ensueño: un camino lleno de antiguos cautivos, ahora liberados, que regresan a casa (Sión-Jerusalén), sus bocas llenas de risa y sus lenguas de cantos.

    Es una estampa gloriosa del pasado de Israel, un “nuevo éxodo”: la liberación del exilio en Babilonia.

    The Road Home: Scott Hahn Reflects on the Second Sunday of Advent

    The Road Home: Scott Hahn Reflects on the Second Sunday of Advent

    Today’s Psalm paints a dreamlike scene—a road filled with liberated captives heading home to Zion (Jerusalem), mouths filled with laughter, tongues rejoicing.

    It’s a glorious picture from Israel’s past, a “new exodus,” the deliverance from exile in Babylon. It’s being recalled in a moment of obvious uncertainty and anxiety. But the psalmist isn’t waxing nostalgic.

A strong anchor for the day

Thanks to the St. Paul Centre for bringing us the daily readings together with reflections. I start each day, first thing, with the Bible in a Year with Father Schmitz, followed immediately (a la St Mark 😊) by this daily reflection. It’s an oasis in the day.

A Great Blessing

Amazing! What a great way to start your day with daily bible readings and reflections from good Catholic biblical scholars. Just what I was waiting for from The St. Paul Center.
Thank you,
Michael
