Advent Calendar: Wednesday of the Third Week - O Radix Jesse

O Radix Jesse - O Root of Jesse

O Root of Jesse, Which standest for the ensign of the people, before whom kings shall keep silence, Whom the Gentiles shall beseech: come and deliver us, and tarry not. -Is. 11:10

We are very close to the arrival of the King of Kings. He will not come as a King with pomp and majesty but His love for us surpasses the very limits of the universe. 

What will we bring to place before Him? Our Sins? Our Penitence? Our Love? Let us turn to Mary, His Mother and our Mother and ask her help in preparing for His coming!
