Serving the Word: 2nd December


Matthew 7:21,24-27:

“Whoever hears these words of mine and does them is like the wise man who built his house on rock. The rain fell, the floods rose, the winds blew and beat against the house, but it did not fall, because it was built on rock”.


Little by little we are getting closer to Christmas. And, in spite of the hard times we are going through, the whirlwind of these days can be a good indicator to know and realise the foundations on which the construction of our life and, above all, our life of faith is based.

If for you, work or family meals, gifts, lights, parties and so many other things that conceal the true meaning of Christmas are more important, it means that your life of faith is being built on sand and not on solid rock.

There is always time to take care of our spiritual life and to keep building it on solid rock.

Be faithful to your daily prayer, to your daily encounter with the Word, to your frequent living of the Eucharist.

Celebrate the sacrament of Reconciliation during this time of Advent.

Make yourself more aware and closer to the people who suffer, who are hungry, who need you.

May this time of Advent help you to be like the wise man in the Gospel who built his house on rock.

Good day.

Antonio Sanjuán Marín, cmf
