"Repent. Change your heart." On two Sundays every Advent, John the Baptist comes before us with his message calling for a change of heart, for doing what will transform us from a people caught up in our own pursuits to a community open to the dawning of a new age focused on Jesus Christ. John castigates the religious leaders who came out to the wilderness to hear him but whose hearts were far from being open to change. Calling them a brood of vipers would not have won them over, but he accurately declared that the hiding behind a claim to be descendants of Abraham would not gain them the kingdom of heaven either. What was needed was a full-fledged conversion of heart, a pilgrimage to the interior desert where God could woo and win them. The farseeing vision of the prophet Isaiah of one who would come in the power of the Spirit has been fulfilled in Christ. May the Scriptures encourage us to endure in hope, as Paul writes, so we may glorify the God and the Father of Jesus Christ.

How is the Holy Spirit guiding you to renew your heart and your hope during Advent?

Arrepiéntete. Cambia tu corazón.

"Arrepiéntete. Cambia tu corazón." Durante dos domingos de cada Adviento, Juan el Bautista viene ante nosotros con su mensaje llamando a un cambio de corazón, para hacer lo que nos transformará de un pueblo atrapado en nuestras propias actividades a una comunidad abierta al amanecer de una nueva era centrada en Jesucristo. Juan castiga a los líderes religiosos que salieron al desierto para oírlo, pero cuyo corazón estaba lejos de estar abierto al cambio. Llamarlos una cría de víboras no los habría ganado, pero él declaró con precisión que el esconder detrás de una pretensión de ser descendientes de Abraham tampoco les ganaría el reino de los cielos. Lo que se necesitaba era una conversión plena del corazón, una peregrinación al desierto interior, donde Dios podía cortejarlos y ganarlos. La perfecta visión del profeta Isaías de quien vendría en el poder del Espíritu se ha cumplido en Cristo. Así como escribe Pablo, esperamos que las Escrituras nos alienten a perseverar en la esperanza, y glorificar al Dios y Padre de Jesucristo.

¿Cómo te guía el Espíritu Santo para renovar tu corazón y tu esperanza durante el Adviento?
