Celebrating Advent 2020





CELEBRATING THE SECOND SUNDAY OF ADVENT

THE GOSPEL

Gospel – Mark 1:1-8

1 The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ the Son of God.

2 As it is written in Isaiah the prophet: Behold, I am sending my messenger ahead of you; he will prepare your way.

3 A voice of one crying out in the desert: “Prepare the way of the Lord, make straight his paths.”

4 John the Baptist appeared in the desert proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins.

5 People of the whole Judean countryside and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem were going out to him and were being baptized by him in the Jordan River as they acknowledged their sins.

6 John was clothed in camel’s hair, with a leather belt around his waist. He fed on locusts and wild honey.

7 And this is what he proclaimed: “One mightier than I is coming after me. I am not worthy to stoop and loosen the thongs of his sandals.

8 I have baptized you with water; he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.”

THE LIGHTING OF THE SECOND CANDLE

Celebrant: As we gather round our Advent wreath to prepare for the lighting of the second candle, let us pray that nothing may hinder us from receiving Christ with joy....In the words of the acclamations, let us pray...

Celebrant: Prepare a way for the Lord!

All: Make his paths straight!

Celebrant: Let every valley be filled in!

All: Let every mountain and hill be laid low!

Celebrant: Shout with a loud voice: “Here is your God.”

All: The Lord is coming! He is coming to save us.

The second candle is lit.

Let us pray

God of power and mercy, fling wide the doors of our hearts in welcome to the Lord, our Emmanuel.

Remove the things that hinder us from receiving Christ with Joy

so that we may share his wisdom

and become one with him

when he comes in glory

for he lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

one God, for ever and ever.

Amen
