Sunday Gospel Warm-up

Live in Hope

Dec. 4, Mt 3:1-12

One of the themes of Advent is hope. We, who fumble around in the darkness of this world, look to Christ as our guiding light and Jesus has promised to be that for us always. Advent is our time to reconnect with that promise and live in the hope it offers. Our Gospel reading assures us that no matter how dark things might look, the light will continue to shine and only grow brighter.
