1st Sunday of Advent, 27 Nov: Is 2:1-5; Ps 122: 1-9; Rom 13:11-14; Mt 24:37-44 ~ live watchful, decent lives
God of majesty and power, amid the clamour of our violence Your Word of truth resounds; upon a world made dark by sin the Sun of Justice casts His dawning rays.
Keep Your household watchful and aware of the hour in which we live. Hasten the advent of that day when the sounds of war will be for ever stilled, the darkness of evil scattered, and all Your children gathered into one.
We ask this through Him whose coming is certain, whose day draws near: Your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God for ever and ever.

Christ within me, this day – lowly and meek yet all-powerful. Amen.
