The Third Sunday of Advent: The Candle of Joy
As we light the third, rose-colored candle, representing joy, we ponder the mystery that God sent the angels to announce the birth of the new King to poor shepherds. Shepherds were the lowest in the social pecking order, yet God sent his heavenly messengers to deliver the good news of Christ’s birth to them! Can you imagine the joy in their hearts as they realized the magnitude of this birth announcement? From Advent Week 3 : Activity Guide | Cross Catholic Outreach https://bit.ly/3EyS8xv
As you light the candle of joy this week, say this prayer: Lord God, may we, your people, who look forward to the birthday of Christ experience the joy of salvation and celebrate that feast with love and thanksgiving. We ask this through Christ our Lord. From Advent Prayers https://bit.ly/30k76sy
