WELCOME to our celebrations of the Fourth Sunday of Advent, especially if you are visiting the parish.
The New Testament authors consistently reached to the Old Testament for inspiration and understanding. Hence, Jesus is the Torah in person; the new and definitive Temple; the prophet par excellence; the fulfilment of the covenant; etc.
Perhaps the most important of these Old Testament points of reference is the 'Mashiach', the anointed one, the Messiah - that is to say, the new David. As we prepare to celebrate the Nativity of our Lord, the new David, so also we prepare for and look to the return of the anointed one in glory.
