The root of Jesse will stand as an ensign to the peoples.

This is one of the most exciting prayers of the Old Testament. The first part speaks of the indestructible nature of goodness, referring to the oppressed, the meek and the poor. Isaiah could be speaking of the Australian community today. So many good people are reaching out inspired by that sense of right.

It goes on to speak of the mind-blowing possibilities of Godís love for us. In the face of Godís presence, situations of danger and ambiguity fade away. Gabrielís words to Mary are prefigured: ĎWith God nothing is impossible.í And so, we can look ahead with confidence that our endeavours will be blessed as part of the ascent of Godís holy mountain.
