On the second Sunday of Advent, two purple candles can be lit. God is faithful and enriches us in all things, and able to keep us steadfast. Remember, with the God, all things are possible. Including and especially, peace, for ourselves, and for the whole world.
The light of thy countenance, O Lord, is signed upon us:
thou hast given gladness in my heart…
In peace I will sleep, and I will rest:
For thou, O Lord, alone make me secure, and hast settled me in hope.
(Psalm 4: 7, 9-10)
O Lord, bring peace into our hearts and into our homes. Make of us a peaceful people, so that all who see us, see only you. Help us to be the people that you want us to be, so that we may bring all to your holy peace. Amen.
