second Sunday of Advent 2017

 The beginning of the good news of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Mark 1:1 (Sunday Gospel)

In our time we seem to be deluged by bad news: disaster, war, crime, violence, scandal, are the daily diet fed to us by the media. But as we light the second Advent candle we reflect that Jesus Christ is the beginning of good news for us. We await his coming to shine the light of his truth upon our world and into the personal darkness of our own lives. Come, Lord Jesus!
