December 9, 2014 (Is 40:1-11)

Today’s First Reading at mass is the same as we heard this Sunday. Deutero-Isaiah describes what will be the eventual return home of the exiles in language reminding us the Exodus. There will be a superhighway in the wilderness leading home to Jerusalem.

Sometimes, we take an “off ramp” on our super-highway to God. We take an unexpected “detour.” Advent is a good time to “turn around,” experience conversion and get back on the right road.
