3rd Sunday of Advent

Dec 12, 2021

"Gaudete" or "Rejoice" Sunday

Joy is symbolized with the lighting of the pink candle, reminding us of the joy the world experienced at the coming birth of the Savior of the World.

This candle has also been referred to as the “Shepherds’ Candle” as we collectively imagine what incredible joy these humble peasants must have felt when they were heralded by the angels with “Gloria in Excelsius Deo!”
