Readings & Reflections: Wednesday of the First Week of Advent & St. Nicholas, December 6,2017
Today Jesus goes up the mountain. Isaiah prophesied that on a mountain the Lord would wipe away tears, remove people’s reproach, destroy death, and provide for all a feast. We unite ourselves with the lame, the blind, the deformed, and the mute gathered together with Jesus and we pray the primordial Advent prayer: “This is the Lord for whom we looked!”
Lord, you alone can satisfy the longing and hunger in our hearts. May I thirst for your kingdom and find joy in your presence. Give me the true bread of heaven and nourish me with your life-giving word.” Amen.
