“Prepare the way of the Lord, make straight His paths”
How are we preparing the way of the Lord? In this season of advent, we are invited to prepare the way of the Lord so that the people around us will joyfully welcome Jesus in their lives. In our little ways we are able to straighten Jesus’ path towards the hearts of many. If we had a conflict with someone, we do our best to reconcile with the person because it could be hard to welcome Jesus joyfully with a hurting heart. We could be encouraging others so that they may be full of hope in life. A hopeless heart might reject Jesus in his life. As we pray on this passage, let us reflect on what can we do to prepare the way of the Lord so that we will welcome Jesus joyfully in our hearts.
Mama Mary, help us as we prepare the way of the Lord and let our hearts be filled with joy.
