The Third Sunday of Advent - Year A

Meditation on Matthew11: 2-11

Gaze on John’s disciples. We don’t know

all shapes and sizes, and drawn from all
walks of life. They are a faithful band who
have shared with him the rigours of the
desert and the sternness of his message,
and not been put off. They have hoped
great things of him, and even thought he
might be Elijah, or even ‘the one to come’
himself. But John has always insisted
otherwise, and pointed away from himself,
towards another. And now John is in prison
