11.29.2021 2nd Sunday of Advent -C Bread of Life Bible Study

11.29.2021 2nd Sunday of Advent -C  Bread of Life Bible StudyAs we prepare for Christmas and the 2nd coming of Christ we are told to repent and make way for the Lord. Repentance does not mean “I am sorry,” it means “Change”. And that means changing direction by looking away from sin and turning to our loving, forgiving God, and doing things His way not our way.

Even today we often judge by our culture’s standards, – power, beauty, wealth, education – as in John’s time, and miss the really special people through whom God works. Greatness is not measured by what we have, but by what we do for God. We can be like John the Baptist and give ourselves entirely to God so his power can work through us.

“There is a famine today that is raging across this great land of ours. There is a deep hunger and thirst for the healing Word of God … With humility, boldness, and energy, we must personally hear the Word, pray the Word, study the Word, proclaim the Word, and live the Word of the Lord Jesus Christ.” (from Introduction for The Bread of Life Bible Study)

Today’s podcast is based on the Bread of Life Catholic Bible Study and presented by the coauthor, Marie Finn. Please visit the website: www.StDismasGuild.org for more information and for supplemental materials.

We pray that today maybe a special day in your life as you experience the presence of Jesus Christ among us through this podcast. May the Lord speak to each heart the words He wants us to hear!

Magnificat, taken from Luke: 1, is the great hymn of praise that Mary prayed while visiting her cousin, Elizabeth. We trust that this sharing will help us better understand that we are truly children of God, made in His image and likeness, and are called to “go and bear fruit, fruit that will last” (John 15:16). Join with us as we come together in God’s presence and proclaim that the Almighty has done great things for you and me. Holy is His Name!
