Waiting for His Coming... Advent Week 3


REJOICE... I rejoice in this light, His light... His promise...

Today is Gaudete Sunday, the third Sunday of Advent. Gaudete is Latin for "Rejoice". This day, midway through Advent, a sense of JOY is heightened as soon the happiness of Christmas Day is nearly here--The Lord's coming.

Gaudete Sunday is often marked by rose-colored candles and decorations at Church, priestly vestments etc. I couldn't find the right rose-pink candle to work with my Advent wreath here this year, so continuing the purple theme... but with extra JOY


"Gaudete in Dominio semper... gaudete"
Rejoice in the Lord always... rejoice...

  1. I think your purple is lovely and you know about rejoicing so I'm sure it's all fine! Purple is just really dark pink!

  5. I was singing along to Gaudete earlier in the week - probably just as well no one else could hear me. Mr C commented recently that he likes to hear me sing because he knows that I’m happy, but he isn’t impressed with my singing! Marie x
