Luke 3:10–18

In this Advent Gospel, John the Baptist answers some specific questions about preparing for the coming of the Messiah. He urges the sharing of food and clothing. He asked tax collectors to be fair and soldiers to be satisfied with their wages. Most of all, John pointed to the one who is to come and who would baptize them with the Holy Spirit. What does your family do to prepare for Christ’s coming?

Lucas 3, 10–18

En este Evangelio de Adviento, Juan Bautista responde algunas preguntas específicas acerca de la preparación para la venida del Mesías. Insta a compartir los alimentos y la ropa. Instó a los cobradores de impuestos a ser justos y a los soldados a estar satisfecho con sus salarios. Principalmente, Juan señaló al que ha de venir y que ha de bautizarlos con el Espíritu Santo. ¿Qué hacen sus familias para prepararse para la venida de Cristo?
