Tuesday, Third Week of Advent

December 16, 2014

JMJ

Blessed Tuesday!

Entrance Antiphon:
Behold, the Lord will come, and all His holy ones with Him;
and on that day there will be a great light.

Collect:
O God, who through your Only Begotten Son
have made us a new creation,
look kindly, we pray,
on the handiwork of your mercy,
and at your Son’s coming
cleanse us from every stain of the old way of life.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.

Readings:
Zephaniah 3: 1-2, 9-13 (God will leave a humble, holy remnant in Israel)
Psalm 34: 2-3, 6-7, 17-19, 23 “The Lord hears the cry of the poor”
+ Matthew 21:28-32 (God’s looking for changed lives)

If we don’t fly to God
for refuge
there’s no refuge to be had.

We will fall prey
to our own evil ways.

He must correct us.
We must change.
Or there’s no hope at all.
Our pride must fall
and we must call
on Him.

But when we do,
He raises us
removing all our shame
so that our faces beam
with joy.

Where am I trying to find refuge?
Do I ask God to help me recognize my sins and correct them?
