Prepare the Way

Mike Drennan SJ reflects on the Advent theme of Isaiah Isaiah 40:3-5, "Prepare the way of the Lord." He looks at the internal aspects and considers how we can hear Advent's invitation.

For Prayer and Reflection


  • Take some time with key people who prepared the way, such as John the Baptist – Matthew 3:1-12, or John 1:19-28 and 3:30 or with the significant people in the infancy narratives in chapters 1 and 2 of Luke.
  • Where do I see God preparing a way now and how do I wish to respond to it?
