Second Sunday of Advent
Merciful God, who sent your messengers the prophets to
preach repentance and prepare the way for our salvation:
Give us grace to heed their warnings and forsake our sins,
so that we may greet with joy the coming of Jesus Christ our
Redeemer; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy
Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
For personal reflection:
Preparing the way for salvation is difficult work. It begins with a call to repentance which means turning from our ways to God. Will you commit to turning to God today?
