Here are some thoughts from the Advent Day of Prayer conducted by Fr. Marek on Monday of the Third week of Advent. The theme of our mediation is “Gaudete in Domino semper”.
“Rejoice in the Lord always” reads the opening antiphon for the 3 Sunday of Advent Mass. Yes, yesterday we celebrated the Rejoice Sunday. As you have noticed, in order to remind the people that they were preparing for the very joyful occasion of the birth of Jesus, the celebrant wore “rose” vestments yesterday and we lit the rose candle on the advent wreath. We expressed our joy in the coming of Jesus, our savior.
