...A voice of one crying out in the desert:
"Prepare the way of the Lord,
make straight his paths.
Every valley shall be filled
and every mountain and hill shall be made low.
The winding roads shall be made straight,
and the rough ways made smooth,
and all flesh shall see the salvation of God.''
Luke 3: 4-6
As the journey of Advent continues, John the Baptist's call sounds out as he asks us to prepare the way for the coming Lord. It is a pressing invitation to open our hearts and to welcome the Son of God.
