It’s time to cry out

3rd Sunday of Advent, based on Isaiah 61:1-2,10-11

The spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me; he has sent me to bring good news to the oppressed, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and release to the prisoners; to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn;

I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my whole being shall exult in my God; for he has clothed me with the garments of salvation, he has covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself with a garland, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. For as the earth brings forth its shoots, and as a garden causes what is sown in it to spring up, so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring up before all the nations.

  1. Es difícil entender los resultados y cosecuencias que el Espiritu de Dios esta sobre nosotros para dar la Buena nueva, y que se nos viste con vestiduras de salvación, y el gozo y como llevar lacorona de novio o de novia para una boda y la alegia y el gozo de los novios . algo que se vive en inmediatez y contacto con el señor, es algo que potencia nuestra corporalidad e espiritualidad y nuestra fe, esperanza y caridad, Dios nos salva con esta ternura donación. le pido al Señ0r la fuerza para vivir nuestra salvación.

  2. Thank you, Brian, for reminding us that we, too, are to cry for those who need to hear our cries on their behalf.
