Advent, Second Week, Sunday

Thus says the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel: "O people, no more will you weep; He will be gracious to you when you cry out, as soon as He hears He will answer you. The Lord will give you the bread you need and the water for which you thirst. No longer will your Teacher hide Himself, but with your own eyes you shall see your Teacher, while from behind, a voice shall sound in your ear: ’This is the way: walk in it’." Isaiah 30, 19-26 Lord, I cry out to You: Give me Your bread and water; Strengthen me to walk in the way of Your Teaching.
