.- During the recitation of the Angelus on the Second Sunday of Advent, Pope John Paul II said the call of St. John the Baptists resonates still today, calling mankind to follow Jesus.
Speaking with somewhat difficulty, the Pope said John the Baptists âshows the way that must be traveled, to the people of the third millennium in search of serenity and peace.â
The Holy Father recalled that this liturgical season prepares us to ârecall the birthâ that took place 2000 years ago, âand we renew our faith in his glorious coming at the end of time.â âWe prepare ourselves at the same time to recognize him present in our midst,â he added.
The Pope also said that âour model and guide in this Advent spiritual journey is Maryâ in whom God âhas found âgood soil,â where he has sowed the seeds of a new humanity.â
May She help us prepare âthe way of the Lord in us and in the world,â he concluded.
