The (Advent) story–
Brother Angelo is tidying up the hermitage for Christmas! Brother Francis comes home and Brother Angelo tells him how three robbers came to the door for food, but he turned them away. Brother Francis rebukes Brother Angelo and Brother Angelo goes to find the robbers with some food. He finds them, gives them supper, and asks for their forgiveness. In a legend, it says that the three robbers later came down to the hermitage and lived there.
Today is the second week of Advent. It’s about peace and preparation.
- Eliza read Isiah 40:1-5
- The above passage is quoted in Luke 3
- We also read a letter wrote roughly one thousand years ago by St. Bernard
- Mark 14
God loves us and we can have peace that Jesus will come.
The coming of Jesus as a baby isn’t the only important coming. The other one is the coming of Jesus into our lives!
