Today is the Second Sunday of #Advent - How have you been preparing your hearts for the coming of Christ? 🎄 ⁠
⁠
"Welcome one another, then, as Christ welcomed you,⁠
for the glory of God. For I say that Christ became⁠
a minister of the circumcised to show God's truthfulness,⁠
to confirm the promises to the patriarchs, but so ⁠
that the Gentiles might glorify God for his mercy.⁠
As it is written: Therefore, I will praise you among ⁠
the Gentiles and sing praises to your name."

"Brothers and sisters:⁠
You know the time;⁠
it is the hour now for you to awake from sleep.⁠
For our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed;⁠
the night is advanced, the day is at hand."
