Everyone: Check out Sunday's Gospel
"Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight"
To re-pent really means to "re-think" or to "re-consider."
When we do that, we often turn around and go another way, make a different decision, change our minds...
If the kingdom of heaven really is drawing near, what would we be wise to re-evaluate?
How do we make the path of the Lord straight?
How do we make it easy for Him to come directly to us?
What barriers can we remove?
Are there some that we need to ask God to remove for us?
probably naturally precede tearing down obstacles to smooth passage for the Lord.
