Weekly Reflection

Repent! John the Baptist was selected by God to be the herald of our Lord Jesus, to help prepare His way. The urgent message of repentance delivered to the Jews by John the Baptist is as relevant today as it was in the time of Jesus. We are all sinners and therefore are all in need of repentance if we are to cooperate with God’s plan for our salvation. It was not Jesus who needed John the Baptist to announce his coming as much as it was the Jewish people who needed to have their hearts prepared for the coming of the Messiah. During this season of Advent, we too must heed John’s promptings to open our hearts to receive God’s grace.
