1ST SUNDAY OF ADVENT - AND YET...
Today's selection from the Gospel of Mark is one for hard times. This was certainly true for the community for whom Mark wrote. This early Christian community faced many
problems, notably the destruction of Jerusalem in the year 70 and persecutions by both religious and political authorities. The new faith had torn families apart and false
prophets were predicting Christ's imminent return. Who could blame these early Christians for asking, "Where is Jesus now that we need him? Has he forgotten us? When is he going to return?".
