2nd Sunday of Advent - C (December 9, 2018)
The Word of God Came to John
Luke introduces a year, then a list of names of people and places to provide a concrete setting for “the word of God came to John the son of Zechariah.”
Into concrete situations, places, and people that the word of God comes into human history and our individual life. Advent calls us to renew our encounter with God in the concreteness of life.
Similarly, each son and daughter of God, you and I, has a unique and concrete place in God’s plan of salvation for all humanity. Advent reminds us of our vocation of furthering the Kingdom of God in the concreteness of our lives. That is our vocation until “all flesh [has] see the salvation of our God.”
