On this fourth Sunday of Advent, the question asked by John the Baptist in last Sunday's Gospel comes to fruition: "Is Jesus the One?" The story of the Birth of Jesus from this Sunday's Gospel resonates strongly with the prophesy of Isaiah and so we come to know that Jesus is the promised Messiah. Father's sermon traces this truth through scriptural evidence from the Old Testament, specifically as it is catalogued in the popular Advent hymn, O Come, O Come, Emmanuel.
