A Call For Vocies

in Advent

Second Sunday of Advent — Cycle C

December 6, 2015

“A voice of one crying in the desert: ‘Prepare the way of the Lord, make straight his paths.’” (Lk 3:4b)

A Call For Voices

Prophets of our time—are you among them?
Reminding all who will listen, “Prepare the way of the Lord”
Open our ears, Lord. Open our eyes, Open our hearts.
Prepare our lives by our repentance and reformation.
Hope still flickers in our hearts, but so often fades in failures.
Extinguish not this flame of flesh. Do not let it turn to ash.
Truly we long to experience new life and a renewal of our Baptismal vows.
Savior, come and restore us with your love and mercy. Amen

For Reflection and Sharing:

1. Who are our modern day prophets?
2. What hinders our call to prepare and repent this Advent?
3. What gives you hope in these troubled times?
4. How will love and mercy play a part in repentance?
5. When you notice the flame of faith barely flickering, what do you do?
6. Who has been the John the Baptist in your life?
7. How can you help another, when their flames no longer flicker?
