Waiting in Joyful Hope
The Church year begins with the Season of Advent. The word Advent comes from the Latin word meaning coming. The Lord is coming. It is a time of preparation that directs our hearts and minds to Christ’s second coming and also to the anniversary of the Lord’s birth on Christmas.
Purple reflects the call of John the Baptist to repent—to turn our hearts and minds to God.
The pink of the third Sunday in Advent, Guadete Sunday, reminds us we wait in joyful hope for the promises of God to those who follow his ways.
