Scripture Reading: Mark 1:1-8

Today in a special way the church calls us to reflect on the good news that this season brings – that is the coming of Christ.  Today all our readings focus on the following themes, the imminence of the Lord’s coming and arrival, the need for repentance for the forgiveness of our sins, and of course the need to live saintly, holy and spotless lives. All of these are geared towards making sure that we are fully prepared for the glorious encounter with our Lord and King, Jesus Christ
