An Advent Prelude
During last year’s Easter Season, Father Marsal who used to be at our parish church, used the questions of Easter Sunday that appear in the Gospels for his sermon-meditation. I think we might do the same thing with the questions of Advent found in Luke.
- Zechariah: “How shall I know this, for I am an old man…?”
- Blessed Mother: “How can this be…?”
- Elizabeth: “Who am I…?” “Who am I that the mother of my Lord should come to me?”
- The neighbors and relatives of Zechariah and Elizabeth: What do you wish your son to be called?
- Neighbors and friends again: “What, then, will this child be?”
- Joseph: Do you have a place for us?
