1st Sunday of Advent
This Sunday, the second reading will be from 1 Thessalonians 3:12-4:2. But I strongly suggest reading the other readings as well.
Like many of the readings for Advent will, the first reading looks forward to the birth of the messiah, and the gospel looks forward to his return.
We know beyond any shadow of doubt that Jesus is coming back. We know this because he told us that he was coming back, and his word is trustworthy.
In light of this, what should we do to prepare our hearts?
