First Sunday of Advent

Heavenly Father, you are not only the Almighty, you are holy! Holy, Sacred, Holy are you, the LORD God Almighty. May the entire earth be filled with your glory and may that glory be exposed in what we do and say. Forgive us of our own sin and insincerity. Bless us with purity, virtue, and sanctity as we pledge our life to your glory. In Infant Jesus' name we pray. Amen.

  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (Mark 13:33-37)
The prophet Isaiah informs us that God will certainly reward those who remain for his visitation: "From of old no one has heard or professed by the ear, no eye has seen a God besides you, who works for those who wait for him" (Isaiah 64:4). Our Lord Jesus Christ, assigns us with his gifts and grace and he anticipates to be ready for achievements and prepared for the future. Our call is not only believe, but also to watch with hopeful faith; not only to love, but to wait with hopeful longing; not only to follow, but to prepare with joyful eagerness! What are we to watch, wait, and get ready for? The greatest event to come – the return of our Master and Lord Jesus when he comes once more in glory to meet us at the end of the times. The kind of examination of our Lord has in mind is not a passive "wait and see what occur” approach to life. The Lord advises us to caution and to active prayer that his "Sovereignty will come" and his "will be complete on earth as it is in heaven". We are not only to remain for Christ, but to watch with Christ. The Lord wants us to have our hearts and minds fixed on Jesus and his word. He wants us to be prepared for his action and elegance in our lives and in our world. Those who "remain" for the Lord will not be disappointed. He will certainly come with his grace and saving help. Do we observe for the Lord's action in our life with hopeful faith and with joyful hope?
