The Blind See

St. Francis at Prayer

Keeping the Season of Advent for December 2, 2022

Isaiah vividly portrays the day when justice comes, saying, “On that day the deaf shall hear / the words of a book; / And out of gloom and darkness, / the eyes of the blind shall see.” This will be a time when people keep holy the name of God, and those who err will find understanding. But already in the Gospel, Jesus opens the eyes of two blind men because of their faith. During Advent, may we seek to realize that the Lord is our light and salvation, as the psalm’s refrain states. Today’s readings: Isaiah 29:17–24; Psalm 27:1, 4, 13–14; Matthew 9:27–31.

Celebrate This Christmas!
While you’re having a quiet moment for prayer or dinner this week as a family, use the KEEPING THE SEASON’s handout to bring Advent and the seasons beyond to life at your house. The gifts of joy and hope given to us by the Birth, Death, and Resurrection of Jesus offer something for everyone starting on November 27th, 2022
