On the second Sunday in Advent Fr. Elias preaches on John the Baptist's ministry of proclaiming the coming, the advent, of Christ in the wilderness, that is, to mankind. Just as Jesus brought a new message to Israel, so too we need to re-evangelize a people who have gone far astray in our modern, materialistic world. Father also relates this to St. Juan Diego who's feast day is normally today (overridden this year by a Sunday) and was instrumental in bringing the faith to the pagan word of Aztec Mexico.
