Our Lady of Fatima and St Thomas More weekly newsletter

Communities / Thu 8th Dec 2022 at 03:35pm

LAST Sunday our thoughts were focused on “being prepared” for the day of judgment, and were rather
morbid; today, a more joyous theme is presented as we are shown the ideal image of God’s presence in and amongst people.

Our readings tell us of a vision of peace and joy and hopefulness that contrasts starkly with the reality that we know.

Isaiah 11: 1-10 – In Isaiah’s vision, the wolf and the lamb, the leopard and the kid, the calf and the
lion shall live together with a child leading them! Evil and Hate shall no longer exist; they will be replaced
by Justice and Love under the rule of the Messiah!
2 Romans 15: 4-9 – Paul argues that, with Christ as the common denominator, all people,
regardless of origin or background, can live in a state of harmony with each other.
Matthew 3: 1-12 – The thoughts expressed in this passage of St. Matthew’s gospel are a little more
down to earth. John the Baptist, with his colourful rhetoric tells his followers that one more powerful than he is coming; they must prepare themselves for this new Teacher by changing their lifestyles through repentance.
