    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
