Advent is a time of solemn yet joyful preparation for the birth of the Christ-child. Many people around the world also spend time trying to find the perfect gift for friends and family. But what can we give to baby Jesus Himself?

Sylvester shares how he offers his work so that others may come to experience the love of God and have their lives transformed by Jesus, just like how his life did.

Strict as he was, Fr William Lim had a heart for the people and was present for them in the trials that they faced.

“The difference between juridical contrition and sincere contrition is this – juridical contrition is when I am sorry that I broke God’s laws, whilst sincere contrition is when I am sorry I that I broke God’s heart.”

Why do we celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation?

As we busy ourselves with the preparation of gifts for our family and loved ones, are we ready to receive Jesus – the greatest gift of all – by gifting ourselves to Him?

Is it your great desire to please others that presides over the desire to please God? Or is it your distorted perception of God that makes you believe that He is easily angered and one who seeks to punish and restrict you? Or could it be your struggle with a particular sin or way of life?

Let us be resolved in cutting the chains that hold us back from receiving the fullness of God’s love for us. May we be restored in our identities as beloved children of the Lord, as we abandon our old ways of life.

"Confession is always a place of victory."

However, more often than not, we feel it is a place that we are judged for what we have done and our sins will be remembered by the priests. We allow our fears to cloud what the Sacrament of Reconciliation is really all about – God overwhelming mercy and unconditional love for each of us.

Going to confession is a sign that we are trying, that we have not given up on Jesus. Let's continue trying and come back to Him.

Lord Jesus, prepare our hearts and minds to welcome you with deep faith and an active waiting. Remove any doubts and hesitations we might have. May our repentance be a genuine act of contrition manifested in our willingness to change our lives for you.

Amen

2nd Sunday of Advent
Luke 3:1-6

In the fifteenth year of Tiberius Caesar’s reign, when Pontius Pilate was governor of Judaea, Herod tetrarch of Galilee, his brother Philip tetrarch of the lands of Ituraea and Trachonitis, Lysanias tetrach of Abilene, during the pontificate of Annas and Caiaphas the word of God came to John son of Zechariah, in the wilderness. He went through the whole Jordan district proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins, as it is written in the book of the sayings of the prophet Isaiah:

A voice cries in the wilderness:
Prepare a way for the Lord,
make his paths straight.
Every valley will be filled in,
every mountain and hill be laid low,
winding ways will be straightened
and rough roads made smooth.
And all mankind shall see the salvation of God.
