“What are we to do?”


In today’s Gospel Luke continues to speak about the activity of John the Baptist as he prepares the people to receive the Messiah. He asks them to straighten up their lives through repentance and baptism for the forgives of sins. In order to do this, he proposes to the different types of people who come to him concrete ways of showing their readiness to break with a past of sin and to enter into the new life he proposes. It will be a time of sharing and justice for all.
