Friday of 3rd Week of Advent, based on Jeremiah 23:5-8

The days are surely coming, says the Lord, when I will raise up for David a righteous Branch, and he shall reign as king and deal wisely, and shall execute justice and righteousness in the land. In his days Judah will be saved and Israel will live in safety. And this is the name by which he will be called: “The Lord is our righteousness.” Therefore, the days are surely coming, says the Lord, when it shall no longer be said, “As the Lord lives who brought the people of Israel up out of the land of Egypt,” but “As the Lord lives who brought out and led the offspring of the house of Israel out of the land of the north and out of all the lands where he had driven them.” Then they shall live in their own land.

About Mr Mike Kelly OP

I am married to Jenny, and we have 5 grown-up children and 9 grandchildren. I have had careers in education, and as an immigration consultant. Jenny and I are part of a local Dominican family, and have been part of a preaching team that travelled widely. The thing that makes me Dominican is what Fr Timothy Radcliffe OP calls "a deep relationship between the Dominican vocation to preach, and a passion for justice".
