Keep Straight. Keep Right.

“A voice of one crying out in the desert: ‘Prepare the way of the LORD, make straight his paths. Every valley shall be filled and every mountain and hill shall be made low. The winding roads shall be made straight, and the rough ways made smooth, and all flesh shall see the salvation of God” (Lk 3:3-6; cf. Is 40:3-5).

5 December 2021. 2nd Sunday Advent, Cycle C-2022. Baruch 5:1-9 + Philippians 1:4-6, 8-11 + Luke 3:1-6

The straight line between two points
Is the shortest distance between the two points.
The straight path between two posts
Is the surest way hardly anyone gets lost.
LORD, You are the Way and the Truth.
To follow You straight to the Father,
I fill up all the holes in which I hid from You,
I level all the hills I have blocked You out,
I straighten up all the crooked in my life,
I welcome you straight into my heart,
No if and no but, no why and no sigh.
