During the first 9 days of Advent during the week, the first reading for the Eucharistic liturgy comes from the book of the prophet Isaiah.

Reflection: Matthew 3:1-12 THE DOME BLOG - December 4, 2016 Second Sunday of Advent - Matthew 3:1-12 The main character in today's Gospel is John the Baptist.

It was of John that the prophet Isaiah said: "A herald's voice in the desert: 'Prepare the way of the Lord, make straight his path'".

Belts THE ONE TRUE FAITH - December 1, 2016 ... Jesuit Father Cornelius a Lapide saying that a belt can be penitential. Leather is sturdy and strong. John's hair shirt held securely in place with a leather belt would prick and be very uncomfortable. Following this thought, so would a "girded" mind. The tight belt helps keep the mind focused on the task at hand and not fantasizing who knows what. So that's why John wore a leather belt. So did St. Dominic. In fact, there's a story that said when Dominic and Francis met, they exchanged belts. ...http://theonetruefaith-faith.blogspot.com/2016/12/belts.html

Feast of St. Andrew, Apostle REFLECTIONS OF AN RSCJ - November 30, 2016 "Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men." The Gospel for today's feast from St. Matthew begins: "As Jesus was walking by the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon who is called Peter, and his brother Andrew, casting a net into the sea; they were fishermen. He said to them, "Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men." At once they left their nets and followed him." The "at once" is what strikes me. It is rather startling to think that they would ...http://reflectionsofanrscj.blogspot.com/2016/11/feast-of-st-andrew-apostle.html

The Mass Readings for this first Sunday of Advent provide us with a wake-up call – St Paul tells us that 'the time' has come and that we must wake up now and in the Gospel Jesus tells us to stay awake and stand ready for His coming.

Jesus "comes" whenever someone is baptized, someone receives absolution in confession, and in all the sacraments. And, of course, he "comes" in such a wonderful way when the Holy Mass is offered, and he himself makes present his sacrifice at the altar. So, realize, that what the Gospel promises is likewise fulfilled right here, before your eyes! Yes, there ...http://frmartinfox.blogspot.com/2016/11/fulfilled-in-your-presence-sunday-homily.html
