Resumen de la Escritura

In the fourth week of Advent, we focus on prophecies of the arrival of the Messiah. Isaiah foretells the coming of the Prince of Peace who will reign on the throne of David forever. In the first reading from Luke, Mary rejoices after her visit to Elizabeth, for she understands that her child will play a key role in God’s redemptive work. Paul reminds Titus that our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, has brought salvation to all. The second reading from Luke might more logically have come first this week, for it describes how Mary reveals the importance of her child in her song of rejoicing.
