Advent WK3A

Advent looks backward to the historical coming of Christ and looks forward to His Second Coming at the end of time. You and I stand in the middle between the two. Our job is not just to sit and look back but to roll up our sleeves and complete the work that Jesus started. Concretely, what does this mean? It means building up the Kingdom of God in our world. It means filling our world with love rather than hate. It means filling our world with truth rather than resentment. It means filling our world with forgiveness rather than resentment. It means filling our world with Christian compassion rather than cold indifference. In short, it means building the kind of world Jesus Himself would build if He were in our place. This is the message of today’s readings.
