I'm a few days late here, but didn't want to miss the opportunity to talk about this, the second week of Advent. We now light two candles in our preparation for the birth of Jesus. Sunday's Gospel talks about John the Baptist, who was simple and humble. Isn't it great how God often chooses those who are little to do great things? Look at St. Therese, for example. Such a little, humble person who loved God greatly and did such powerful things. During Advent, we can do little acts of love like St. Therese did, as we prepare our own hearts for Jesus to come.
