On the Third Sunday of Advent, we joyfully focus on Christ’s arrival as the “light” for the whole world. This is why this Sunday is sometimes called “Gaudete Sunday” which means “rejoice.”
Prayer of the Day
Stir up the wills of your faithful people, Lord God, and open our ears to the words of your prophets, that, anointed by your Spirit, we may testify to your light; through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
