(2nd Sunday of Advent, B and Pearl Harbor Day)
The prophet Isaiah said, “A voice cries out: In the desert prepare the way of the LORD! Make straight in the wasteland a highway for our God!” Is 40:1-5, 9-11
Sometimes it’s a whisper, beloved, sometimes it’s a shout, and sometimes it’s a cry. Yes, sometimes God even cries for us. Come back, make way, return and repent. Your love awaits you!
St. Peter said, “Do not ignore this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is like a thousand years and a thousand years like one day.” 2 Pt 3:8-14
Have you experienced the Lord’s time, beloved? When a sleepless night might seem like a thousand years, and a three hour flight go by in the blink of an eye. So do not worry about the future. And do not fret over the past. Just concentrate on pleasing God with every waking moment we have. And that “pleasing” is accomplished through our communion with others. Be they strangers or our very closest loved ones.
God will take care of the “TIME.”
