November 29, 2015 – First Sunday of Advent, Year C
“Every valley shall be filled and every mountain and hill shall be made low.” -- Luke 3:5
What does it mean to follow the words of Isaiah to “Fill every valley and bring mountains low?” We tend to think in symbolic terms during this Advent season. Our guest presenter, Fr. Richard Berg, CSC, recalls an inspirational story of how one woman simply lived that prophetic message for the community at the Downtown Chapel here in Portland, Oregon. It’s a good reminder that our prayer and preparation rituals need to lead us to Christian action.
About The Five Loaves: Like the scripture story reveals, we believe miracles still happen when people are willing to offer their simple gifts for the good of others. Please share this free weekly video reflection. Feel free to post, tweet, or forward a link to those who need to hear the Good News!
