Jesus is on his way...
There's no Christmas without Christ!
Advent comes from the Latin word meaning “coming." Jesus is coming to give us another opportunity to welcome him into our hearts.
While we typically regard Advent as a joyous season, it is also intended to be a period of self-preparation for His arrival.
The purple colour associated with Advent is also the colour of penance. The faithful should receive during this time the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
The Third Sunday of Advent is called "Gaudete" Sunday, which means "rejoice" in Latin. The colour of the Third Sunday of Advent is rose. This colour symbolizes joy and represents the happiness we experience in welcoming Jesus into our hearts.
