2nd Sunday of Advent, C

God's majesty

Luke 3:1-6 

Whenever we think of majesty, we think of pomp, and extravagance.  God's majesty is in his beauty and splendor and how he rules the world with justice and mercy.  John the Baptist also reflected the majesty of the Lord in terms of the conversion, baptism of repentance, and preparing the way of the Lord.

I recall in the orientation of prayer of St. Ignatius, we hope that all our efforts will tend to serve and glorify his divine majesty.  What does it mean for us?

First, to serve and glorify his divine majesty is to accept his kingship over the whole world and our lives as well.  Let us pray that we may entrust everything to his care.

Second, to serve and glorify his divine majesty is to place ourselves under his feet; only Him shall we adore, love, and serve.  Let us pray to be his disciples.

Third, to serve and glorify his divine majesty is to align all our work and efforts in this world to manifest his kingship in the world most especially in serving the poor and in the forgiveness of sins.  Compassion and mercy are the very basis of every action; all these should lead to everyone living a life of love, service, and forgiveness.

Let us reflect the majesty of the Lord!
