Theme: Hope!

As we hear the scripture for the second Sunday of Advent, we can almost hear the people of the day shouting in excitement waiting for the messiah. If there were newspapers in Jesus’ time, then surely he would have made the headline news! The event of God becoming human in Jesus Christ is not just an editorial comment but is, in fact, the headline news reading that ‘the Word has become flesh. He now lives among us!’ God becoming human in Jesus Christ was the event of the century and the millennium that would change the world forever. Today, this is not just regular news but great news!

Lentpic

The penitential season of Lent is the period of forty days beginning on Ash Wednesday.  It is a season of the Church year which commemorates the forty days Jesus fasted and prayed in the wilderness before he began his public ministry of preaching for repentance.  Six Sundays are within the season, the last, Passion Sunday, marks the beginning of Holy Week. Holy Thursday begins the Triduum “three days” before Easter day, which includes Good Friday and Holy Saturday.

Theme: God waits patiently for sinners to repent

Here is a story that complements that of Zacchaeus in today’s Gospel. A lawyer with a well-earned reputation for arrogance and ruthlessness was married and he had one daughter. But this lawyer’s workaholic lifestyle left little time for his family and he further jeopardized his home life by doing whatever came to his mind. One evening, this lawyer walked into a Mall where a robbery was in progress. He was shot twice and critically wounded. When he regained consciousness, he had amnesia and was paralyzed. Slowly and with great effort, the lawyer was rehabilitated, not only physically and emotionally, but spiritually. As he gained a sense of himself, he became aware of the damage he had caused to his family, his clients and himself.
