Fr Philip’s reflection

The word of God came to John.

In our chaos Lord, let us hear once again the Baptist crying out to us:
“Prepare the way, make straight the paths. Every valley filled and hills made low. All flesh shall see the salvation of God.”
God of all new beginnings, make fresh roads into our wilderness.
Let our whole life point to Jesus.
He is born here, is with us now.
Jesus, please turn our deserts into gardens.
Let our hearts be so rooted in you that nothing will ever take away our trust and hope in you.
