3rd Sunday of Advent
We celebrate Gaudete Sunday - "Rejoice" Sunday - this weekend. What are we joyful about? That Jesus came and gave us something we could never get on our own, a gift of supernatural power that brings us beyond even the strongest human ability, the gift of the Holy Spirit. It is only in the Holy Spirit that we find a joy, a peace, a thankfulness that surpasses anything this world can offer. That's why we rejoice this Sunday, that we already have this gift. Have you unwrapped it yet? Come, Holy Spirit!
