"Find us ready, Lord, not standing still. Find us working and loving and doing your will. Find us ready, Lord, faithful in love, building the kingdom that’s here and above, building the kingdom of mercy and love."
These are the lyrics to one of my favorite songs by Catholic musician Tom Booth. It sets the tone for this wonderful season of the new liturgical year.
The Lord is coming. Be on the watch! This is the recurring theme of Advent and in particular of this first Sunday of Advent. The first two readings of this liturgical year bring us face to face with a God who is Father and with the reality of our own sinfulness before him. We have wandered away from him (First Reading) but he is faithful and has sent his own Son to free us from our blame (Second Reading). We must be ever alert so that the coming of the Son does not find us unprepared (Gospel).
