Saturday of the First Week of Advent

Saturday of the First Week of Advent

Readings: Isaiah Chapter 30 verses 19-21, 23-26 / Psalm 147: verses 1-6 / Matthew Chapter 9 verses 35- Chapter 10 verse 1, 5A, 6-8

Friends, I am reminded of the words spoken by the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., “All I want is to leave a committed life behind.” Friends we are all asked to come out of ourselves where we feel comfortable to embrace the uncomfortable. We are all asked to take up the mantle where we are invited to share the loving embrace that we have received, and not limit only to ourselves the grace bestowed upon us. We have been gifted by God to empower others as Jesus inspires us to bring God’s good news to those who need to hear it. Are we willing to be the Face of God  to those who have never encountered the presence of God in their midst?  Are we up for the challenge?
