“Every valley shall be filled and every mountain and hill shall be made low . . . and all flesh shall see the salvation of God.”
- The radicality of John the Baptist’s message here causes us to pause.
- Are there “valleys” you are repeatedly trying to “fill” or “mountains” you are trying to level in order to change something in your life?
- Look one of those “valleys” or “mountains” in the eye today and take action—at least, for today—and take note of what that does to you. (Maybe you can follow suit tomorrow and take one day at a time this Advent.)
Heritage word—“The quality of a life depends on the generosity of a soul in its complete response to the call of Christ.”
(Sister Mary Arthur, 7thProvincial of the Toledo Province)
