Third Sunday of Advent (Year B)

This Sunday we have the example of John the Baptist as a witness to the world around him. He spoke out in spite of opposition from those in positions of power and influence. He did so, not to insult or condemn them, but to try to open their minds to the new thing that God was about to do through his Son.  He prepared the way for the promised Messiah’s teachings which would challenge much of Jewish understanding of God and neighbour.

 

Today we find our faith greatly challenged in society. Persecution of Christians is widespread, and even in our own land, though more hidden and subtle, opposition to Christ’s teachings and values is common. Now it’s our turn to carry on John’s work.
