For adults: The Church’s three-year cycle of Lectionary readings begins again on the First Sunday of Advent. We start reading from Cycle B, which is organized around Mark’s Gospel. Throughout Advent, we also hear the prophet Isaiah’s words in the First Reading. On this first Sunday of the Church Year, Jesus speaks of his coming in glory. He cautions us always to be ready for him, to live each day in the light of God.
See The Gospel at Home (English and Spanish) for suggested family activities and discussion starters related to this Sunday’s Gospel.
