Is peace the absence of conflict? Or is it something more? When Jesus said, “Blessed are the peacemakers” (Matt. 5:9) it was in the context of his praising those who are often maligned by the world. Being people who pursue true peace—justice for all and a world where everyone flourishes—means...

Resumen de la Escritura

The boy Samuel worshiped and served God from a young age. He grows in stature and favor, the same description that will later be applied to the young Jesus in this week’s reading from Luke. The psalmist praises God for raising up a “horn” for the people. This “horn” is referred to elsewhere in the Psalms as being the True King from the line of David, identified later by Luke (1:69) as Jesus. Paul encourages the Colossians to let love rule in their community and to praise God with songs and hymns (such as the Psalms). The additional readings for this special week focus our minds on the Advent of the Lord, the amazing truth that “the Word became flesh and lived among us” (John 1:14), as the prophets had prophesied long ago.
