A Voice in the Wilderness

John the Baptist, the Herald of Jesus’ Coming appears this week as “A voice of one crying out in the desert, prepare the way of the Lord, make straight his paths.” During this Second Week of Advent we ask ourselves: Where is our wilderness, the place of solitude where God speaks to our heart? What is the pathway, the ‘going away from and going towards’ we are being called to?  Advent is a time of pregnant new life waiting to be born in and through us.  The rough places in our lives need to be soften so that Jesus takes on flesh.  With Mary we rejoice, “the Almighty has done great things for me, and holy is God’s Name”.
