Reflection for the Third Sunday of Advent

Isaiah 61:1-2A, 10-11; Psalm 126 or Luke 1:46b-551 Thessalonians 5:16-24; John 1:6-8, 19-28

“The spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, because the LORD has anointed me; he has sent me to bring glad tidings to the poor, to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and release to the prisoners,” (Isaiah 61:1) Only the spirit of God can help us to teach and to be teachable in this time of global unrest due to COVID-19, chronic illnesses, climate change, natural disasters, racism, injustice, boko harram, ambazonians... Without God’s spirit, our teaching cannot bring life to the wounded world. Without humility we cannot be teachable. To be baptized is a blessing. God’s spirit is not out of me but in me. What a great love to mankind.

My God, Bless the New Year

Yes, Lord, time passes by

the time, no, but we pass.

Thus, it is with this song

formerly sung so many times

by my parents

and by all my siblings

that I want to pray to you.

But as you see, Lord,

already, I am changing the words

and apologize to the composer.

A while back,

everyone addressed you in formal terms.

But, I will be informal.

This makes me feel closer to you.
