More than two thousand years since the coming of the Lord into this world, he has not yet been welcomed into so many places, or into so many situations, and into so many lives. The gospel for this Sunday through John the Baptist tells us what we should do to prepare the way. We should ask ourselves what separates from our siblings, our neighbors, our friends? What hinders the harmony that should exist in our families, our communities and even our nation? The words of John the Baptist are meant for us who are listening today. If we want the Lord to come to us, to be part of his kingdom, we must prepare the “road” we must convert, our hearts must be changed. It is not enough to be Baptized. Baptism is just the beginning of a life-long journey of discipleship and active participation of building the kingdom of God every day.
