THIRD SUNDAY OF ADVENT - GAUDETE SUNDAY - LET US REJOICE!!!

Isaiah 61:1-4, 8-11
61:1 The spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, because the LORD has anointed me; he has sent me to bring good news to the oppressed, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and release to the prisoners;

61:2 to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn;

61:3 to provide for those who mourn in Zion-- to give them a garland instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of a faint spirit. They will be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, to display his glory.

61:4 They shall build up the ancient ruins, they shall raise up the former devastations; they shall repair the ruined cities, the devastations of many generations.

61:8 For I the LORD love justice, I hate robbery and wrongdoing; I will faithfully give them their recompense, and I will make an everlasting covenant with them.

61:9 Their descendants shall be known among the nations, and their offspring among the peoples; all who see them shall acknowledge that they are a people whom the LORD has blessed.

61:10 I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my whole being shall exult in my God; for he has clothed me with the garments of salvation, he has covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself with a garland, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.

61:11 For as the earth brings forth its shoots, and as a garden causes what is sown in it to spring up, so the Lord GOD will cause righteousness and praise to spring up before all the nations.

SECOND SUNDAY OF ADVENT


The second candle is lit on this day along with the first candle. It is the Bethlehem candle, reminding that Jesus was born in Bethlehem. 

The theme of readings and teachings during Advent is often to prepare for the Second Coming while commemorating the First Coming of Christ atChristmas. With the view of directing the thoughts of Christians to the first coming of Jesus Christ as savior and to his second coming as judge, special readings are prescribed for each of the four Sundays in Advent.

In recent times the most common observance of Advent outside church circles has been the keeping of an advent calendar or advent candle, with one door being opened in the calendar, or one section of the candle being burned, on each day in December leading up toChristmas Eve. The keeping of an advent wreath is also a common practice, with four or five candles extending from the wreath. The colours associated with the candles are variously interpreted.

FIRST SUNDAY OF ADVENT - BLESSING OF ADVENT WREATH & LIGHTING OF FIRST CANDLE

FIRST SUNDAY OF ADVENT
READING AND PRAYER
LIGHTING OF THE FIRST CANDLE

CMCS STAFF

 The first thing the Lord Jesus gives us in this new Church year, which begins today with the First Sunday of Advent, is a command, a clear and direct command: Be watchful! Be alert! We might translate this a little more directly and in less elevated language; He’s saying: Wake up! Pay attention! And if we don’t start our Advent this way – the way He (more than) suggests, we will have a hard time moving forward.

“Pay attention!” because something remarkable is beginning, something wondrous and of the utmost importance to your life is happening, something earth-shattering and life-changing. But what is happening – in spite of its magnitude – is very subtle, very quiet, and very gentle, yet powerful beyond our imagining. And we could miss it.

The old year in the Church’s calendar ended on the high note of the celebration of Christ as King of, well, absolutely everything – King of the Universe, no small title that! This is the culmination of the whole year’s liturgical movement – from His Birth through His Death, Resurrection and Ascension, and forward even, until the end of time when He will be All in All.

The new year begins, perhaps surprisingly, not with His Birth, not even with His Conception (that reality, the first moment of the Incarnation, celebrated already at the Annunciation on the 25th of March, is wrapped and gently hidden in the womb of Mary and of the old year), but with a period of preparation ... of much-needed preparation.

The rhythm of the liturgical seasons is much more about helping us than about simply marking the great events of salvation history. And we need that help to get ready. At least I need it – and I dare say that we all, together, need it – in order to enter into the mystery that Christmas is: to welcome Christ at Christmas and at His Second Coming (but no one will be able to ignore that!), and, most crucially, at His mysterious Coming In-between. And it is especially the preparation for that great moment that the liturgy and its calendar, and in a special way Advent, seek to prepare us.
