From Deacon Dick

A reflection on the Gospel for the 2nd Sunday of Advent from The Sunday Website of 

St. Louis University (

Jesus, keep us watchful to find your presence. 

THE GOSPEL Luke 3:1-6

The word of God came to John.

In our chaos, oh let us hear  once again the Baptist crying out to us:

“Prepare the way, make straight the paths.

Every valley filled and hills made low.

All flesh shall see the salvation of God.”

God of constant newness, carve fresh roads into our wilderness.

Let our whole life point to Jesus.

He has been born here, is with us now,

turning our deserts into gardens.
