A joyful journey: Advent day by day

Tuesday: "Be true to the Word"

(Reference: Zephaniah 3:1-2, 9-13; Matthew 21:28-32)

We can hold up the parable of the two sons like a mirror that reflects how well we are doing the Father’s will.

Do we say yes to the works of mercy but neglect the poor because we “can’t find the time” to serve them? Or do we admit to our upside-down priorities and set out to do what God desires of us?

St. John of the Cross, jailed for being true to the word, advises us to pray for “a will that is wholly with God, and a mind truly set upon him.”
