Pictured art is Opus Dei - Advent: Preparing for the Lord's Coming.
Based on Zephaniah 3:16-20, Isaiah 12:2-6, Luke 3:7-18
Both prophets, Zephaniah and Isaiah urged the Israelites to prepare for the Day of the Lord, that they will be set free from their exile and be brought back to their homeland, that they “shall fear disaster no more, -- remove disaster, no more oppression, no more shame.” Because, I (the Lord) will bring you home!”
At the end, the Lord will come to bring us joy, not destruction, and to gather us and bring us home. The Day of the Lord will be the day of final homecoming.
We prepare ourselves to welcome the birth of God’s Son this Christmas by sharing God’s joy to the world.
