Today, in Mercy, our Advent readings increase in joyously expectant tone:
- Isaiah’s exultant description of the Peaceful Kingdom
- the Psamist’s confidence in God’s intervention
- Jesus’s miracle, and probable delight, for the paralyzed man lowered through the roof!
These passages are filled with an exuberant expectation, much like children feel as they discover an amazing gift. May we open our hearts with innocent hope toward God’s promise.
If you can, take the time today to read these passages slowly, listening for the particular word that will fall upon your heart like a blossom of hope.
Music: O Come, Divine Messiah – Jennie Lee Riddle and Robbie Seay
