2014 Advent Prayer Reflection by Connor Kearney

Dec 11 2014

Mt. 11: 11-15

The gospel of Matthew talks about the word of God always existing. The gospel reflects a time when God went to speak to all those born of women (all people in the world). He tells them that there is no one greater than John the Baptist except anyone that has entered the Kingdom of Heaven. He also speaks about the suffering of the Kingdom of Heaven due to violence and how the violent ones have taken it by force ever since John’s time. Finally he says that the prophets and their laws have prophesied up to John’s time, and if we are willing to accept it then whoever among us has ears, ought to go hear. The main message of this gospel is acceptance and to be able to listen to God and his magnificent plan for us.
