Sharing the Word for December 11, 2021

Saturday of the Second Week of Advent

December 11, 2021
Daily Reading from the USCCB: Psalm 80:2ac, 3b, 15-16, 17-18

This is a prayer of confidence in God’s presence. We pray that the Lord will rouse his power on our behalf, that he will protect what he has planted, that he will be with us and give us new life. It is an Advent prayer par excellence.

All our safety, our vigor, our vitality, all the meaning of our life comes from the power of the Lord. Our salvation consists in our being in touch with him. We’re in touch with God in prayer, in Scripture, in the liturgy, in the community of faith. Whenever we put ourselves consciously in God’s presence, his face shines on us. It is shining on us now.

“Let us see your face, Lord, and we shall be saved.”
