The Measure of Spiritual Maturity – Second Sunday of Advent

On the second Sunday of Advent as we light the candle of love on the advent wreath circle, we remember the “Royal Law” and commit ourselves to the greatest commandment that Jesus taught: “Love others as yourselves.” The measure of our spiritual maturity is how much we love others. Jesus set the example of loving others by dying on the cross. Our claim of loving others is not enough, Jesus calls us to take a deeper step and show that love by putting into practice.
