Advent Reflection lll

Advent, First Week, Wednesday: Come, let us climb the Lord’s mountain to the house of the God of Jacob, that he may instruct us in his ways, and we may walk in his paths. Then one nation shall not raise the sword against another, nor shall they train for war again. O, come, let us walk in the light of the Lord! Isaiah, 2, 1-5 I come to you, Lord. Teach me to walk in your light and let your peace soon come to us all! John Kilgallen, SJ
