Tuesday in the Second Week of Christmas ‘b’


Today John the Baptist quotes the prophet Isaiah: “I am the voice of one crying out in the desert, ‘Make straight the way of the Lord.’” We are called to make straight the way of the Lord. For a long time, I was reflecting on these words, and I began to understand that God wants me to be honest, humble. God wants me to be clear and straight forward. As Jesus said - simply let your ‘yes’ be ‘yes’ and your ‘no’ be ‘no’. I realize that when I do my examination of conscience, I look for excuses for my bad actions. For example -- I may have said something bad to another person, but then I think to myself, yes, but he provoked me. We tend to do that -- look for a justification for our actions. However, God does not want us to justify ourselves and look for excuses for our sins. No. He knows exactly why you sinned, why you reacted that way. God wants you to be straight-forward. Just say: I am sorry, God, for what I have done, I am sorry that I offended you and offended another person. That’s it -- ‘make straight the way of the Lord’.
