Rejoice!

Happy Gaudete Sunday!

Gaudete in Domino sepmer – Rejoice in the Lord always

~ Philippians 4:4-5

The season of advent was first celebrated as a 40 day fast in preparation for Jesus coming on Christmas day. Today, the four Sundays of advent are still a penitential time, but we take a break from the somber themes of advent on Gaudete Sunday. With grateful hearts, we rejoice today, and celebrate the hope of Jesus’ coming birth!

As you light the three candles on your advent wreath today, remember that the pink one symbolizes the hope Jesus brought into the world when he was born over 2,000 years ago.

Rejoice, Rejoice, Emmanuel!

Shall come to thee, O Israelย
