    Straighten the Path: Scott Hahn Reflects on the Second Sunday of Advent

    Straighten the Path: Scott Hahn Reflects on the Second Sunday of Advent

    Our God is coming. The time of exile— the long separation of humankind from God due to sin—is about to end. This is the good news proclaimed in today’s liturgy.

    Isaiah in today’s First Reading promises Israel’s future release and return from captivity and exile. But as today’s Gospel shows, Israel’s historic deliverance was meant to herald an even greater saving act by God—the coming of Jesus to set Israel and all nations free from bondage to sin, to gather them up and carry them back to

    Enderezar la senda: Scott Hahn refleja sobre el 2º domingo de Adviento

    Nuestro Dios viene. El tiempo del exilio –la prolongada separación de Dios que la humanidad tiene debido al pecado- está a punto de terminar. Esas son las buenas nuevas que proclama la liturgia de este domingo.

    En la primera lectura, Isaías promete la futura liberación israelita de la cautividad y el regreso del exilio.

    Watch for Him: Scott Hahn Reflects on the First Sunday of Advent

    The new Church year begins with a plea for God’s visitation. “Oh that you would rend the heavens and come down,” the prophet Isaiah cries in today’s First Reading.

    In today’s Psalm, too, we hear the anguished voice of Israel, imploring God to look down from His heavenly throne—to save and shepherd His people.

    Velen por su llegada: Scott Hahn refleja sobre el 1er domingo de Adviento

    Velen por su llegada: Scott Hahn refleja sobre el 1er domingo de Adviento

    El nuevo año de la Iglesia comienza con una petición de la visita de Dios: “¡Oh, si rasgases los cielos y bajases!”, clama el profeta Isaías en la primera lectura del domingo.

    También en el salmo de hoy escuchamos la voz angustiada de Israel, que le implora a Dios mirar abajo desde su trono celestial, para salvar y pastorear a su pueblo.

    When the End Comes: Scott Hahn Reflects on the Solemnity of Christ the King

    When the End Comes: Scott Hahn Reflects on the Solemnity of Christ the King

    The Church year ends today with a vision of the end of time. The scene in the Gospel is stark and resounds with Old Testament echoes.

    The Son of Man is enthroned over all nations and peoples of every language (see Daniel 7:13–14). The nations have been gathered to see His glory and receive His judgment (see Isaiah 66:18; Zephaniah 3:8). The King is the divine shepherd Ezekiel foresees in today’s First Reading, judging as a shepherd separates sheep from goats.

    Cuando llegue el final: Scott Hahn reflexiona sobre la Fiesta de Cristo Rey

    Cuando llegue el final: Scott Hahn reflexiona sobre la Fiesta de Cristo Rey

    Esta semana termina el año litúrgico con una visión del final de los tiempos. La escena descrita por el Evangelio es cruda y en ella resuenan ecos del Antiguo Testamento.

    El Hijo del Hombre es entronizado sobre todas las naciones y pueblos de toda lengua (cf. Dn 7,13-14). Las naciones han sido reunidas para ver su gloria y recibir su juicio (cf. Is 66,18; So 3,8). El Rey es el pastor divino que Ezequiel prevé en la primera lectura del domingo; Él juzga así como el pastor separa las ovejas de las ca

Sweet and short

Great insight that is powerful without being too lengthy. I love how Dr Hahn ties the Sunday Readings together which helps me be better prepared to receive the Word on Sunday.

(Only suggestion is that the English and Spanish versions should be a separate podcast feeds so that subscribers don’t automatically receive both languages...)
