We have started our third week of Advent! Gaudete Sunday. Rejoice, says the Lord! Today we light the rose candle of the Advent wreath to express our communal joy in the coming of Jesus as our Savior.
Where do we find our joy? Is the Lord the source of my joy? We sure need to ask ourselves these questions.
One of the things that we experience when receiving God’s love is authentic joy, there is no other recipe for happiness. The Lord presents us a different kind of joy than the world offers us, it is a joy which delights in how God’s love saves us and today we rejoice because the Lord is about to come to the manger of our hearts.
Let’s together, as members of Our Lady of Mount Carmel parish, prepare our hearts so that when the Lord comes in this Church on Christmas day, we do have room for him. Not only the “guest room” but may He stay in our heart as the one who owns it.BACK TO LIST
