Saturday of the Second Week of Advent
Today’s gospel presents the new testament Elijah that is John the Baptist who prepared the way for the coming of the Lord. Surprisingly people did not recognize the Elijah in John. Sometimes people are like that. They come into the world, do great things and moves away without the notice of the other. It is the right time for us all to become another Elijahs who prepare the way for the coming of the Lord. Let us think as to how I can become the new Elijah. Let us make a self examination to see how far we have reached in preparing the way for the lord. if not ready, let us intensify the preparation during these days as we start the nine days of novena for the Christmas.
