​​On the third Sunday of Advent, we celebrate Gaudete Sunday, and light the pink candle of joy in anticipation of the end of fasting and the beginning of rejoicing for the birth of the Saviour. Certain Sundays throughout the liturgical year have taken their names from the first word in Latin of the Introit; the entrance antiphon at Mass. The Introit for Gaudete Sunday is taken from Philippians 4: 4-5,​ "Gaudete in Domino Semper" or, "Rejoice in the Lord always." May we find joy in the Christ Child this season and rejoice as we share this joy with others throughout the year. 🙏🏼 #Advent #joy #adventcountdown #pinkcandle #christmasspirit
