'As it is written in Isaiah the prophet: "Behold, I am sending my messenger ahead of you; he will prepare your way. A voice of one crying out in the desert: "Prepare the way of the Lord, make straight his paths."
This second Sunday of Advent, we continue to prepare for Jesus. All the readings relate to the Lord's coming and salvation. The gospel reading tells of John the Baptist, who came before Jesus, baptizing and preparing people for the arrival of the Messiah.
During our family meeting this week, we focused on how we can prepare ourselves for Jesus and bring others to know Him. There are also some fun videos about John the Baptist and ideas for simple John the Baptist themed snacks.
As you continue your Advent, consider including some simple but meaningful traditions, like the ones described here. Also consider joining the Holy Heroes Advent Adventure for daily videos and activities.
