Gospel in pictures: Sunday 2nd (C) of Advent
Today, through John Baptist's voice, the Gospel urges us to prepare a way for the Lord Jesus. But, really are we the ones who have to open a path to God? Is it not me who needs help from God? In fact, we cannot do anything without Him, but, at the same time He wants to need us: "Make his path straight" (Lk 3:4). How is it possible? Because love cannot be imposed; but in all cases, love can be offered: "God, who created you without you, will not save you without you" (St. Agustin).
