4th Sunday of Advent

Posted on

Originally delivered on December 20, 1987

Readings: Samuel 7:1-5, 8-11, 16; Romans 16: 25-27; Luke 1:26-38

Fr. Healy invites us to try to see how the first reading and the Gospel might be related.  In the first reading, we hear of King David, who wanted to build a great temple for God.  Instead, God says that he wants a temple in the hearts of His people.  And then in the Gospel, we hear Mary say that she is the living temple of God. She fulfills all prophecies and also makes us confront ourselves to likewise be a temple of God to our sisters and brothers.
