Second Sunday of Advent
“I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and hers; he will strike at your head, while you strike at his heel.” Gen. 3:15
Reflection: The Fall comes like lightning as Adam and Eve choose the path of the Devil, exalting themselves to be equals with Him who has no equal. Pandora’s Box is opened and the disease of sin becomes destined to pass on to every human descendant. But even here does the Lord promise that salvation will come. Prayer: God our Father, take away our fear and help us to repent of our sins. May we reach out to the woman whose “Seed” is the source of our salvation and ask her to intercede for us always.
