3rd Sunday of Advent

2017A3Web200Today is Gaudete Sunday. The name comes from the first word of the Entrance Antiphon in Latin which means, ‘Rejoice’: Rejoice in the Lord always, again I say, rejoice! Indeed, the Lord is near.

That is what we are rejoicing in: God’s nearness to us. We recognise that nearness in the presence of Jesus, born so long ago, and his continuing presence through the Holy Spirit in our lives now. We rejoice that God has always been with us, whether we realised it or not. God has never left us.
