Light the second candle on your family Advent wreath. Reflect on today's readings. Consider how today's Gospel about St. John the Baptist reminds us of the main point for this season: Make straight the paths of the Lord.
Today's Jesse Tree Symbol & Reading
God delivered the commandments to Moses on Mount Sinai and Moses brought the resulting tablets—and the commandments—back to his people. The ornament depicts the tablets on which the commandments were written. You will find the story of Moses and the Ten Commandments in Exodus 19:1‐20:26.
