My brothers and sisters,
Today, as we celebrate the third Sunday of Advent, also known as “Gaudete Sunday” from the Introit of today’s Mass, meaning “rejoice.” We are reminded once again, that Advent is a season of joyful hope and expectation as we await the Lord’s coming to us. So, let us “rejoice” for the Lord is indeed near.
Also, a special thank you to everyone who helped celebrate my birthday last weekend. It was a very nice surprise and greatly appreciated. Thank you for your generosity and well wishes. Have a great week!
