Advent - Season of Joy
The liturgical color changes to rose. The candle on the Advent Wreath and the priest’s vestments switch from purple to rose. The third Sunday of Advent is called “Gaudete” Sunday, a Latin word meaning “joy” Our anticipation of the coming Christ is so near that we can practically taste it. The color rose reflects this change in attitude.
 
Our preparation takes on a sense of urgency. Making room for Christ becomes a prime concern during this Season. Making ready the way of the Lord demands that we take a look at our lives, and identify those obstacles that get in the way. It is time “turn our lives around.” It is a time of reconciliation.
 
A Communal Penance Service will be held this coming Tuesday, Dec. 15th at 7:00 pm. There will be four priests available for our parishioners who would like to avail themselves of the Sacrament. Please consider joining us on Tuesday.
