Thursday of the Second Week of Advent
Gospel text
Mt 11:11-15
“Amen, I say to you, among those born of women there has been none greater than John the Baptist."
Gospel's Commentary
Today St. John the Baptist, the Precursor of the Messiah, comes back; he who has come to prepare the way of the Lord. He will also come with us during these days of preparation for Christmas. John is a strong man, one who knows the cost of things and is aware of how fighting is peremptory to improve and become a saint. - Jesus exclaims: «The kingdom of heaven is forcing its way in, and men of force take it. ». What kind of effort are you going to do to receive Jesus?
