A Voice is Crying Out

st. John the baptistJohn the Baptist appeared, preaching in the desert of Judea
and saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand!”
It was of him that the prophet Isaiah had spoken when he said:
A voice of one crying out in the desert,
Prepare the way of the Lord,
make straight his paths.


Today I will make plans to go to the Sacrament of Reconciliation before Christmas.


Jesus, I know you thirst for my soul.  Assist me who is weak and busy with many things to prepare a way in the wilderness of my heart for you!  Help me grow closer to you during this second week of Advent!  Amen.
