Coming up on the Chalice of Salvation

December 17, 2017
Third Sunday of Advent

Rev. Joseph Benicewicz, OFM Conv.
Pastor, St. Stanislaus Bishop & Martyr Basilica
Today we celebrate Gaudete Sunday, gaudete meaning rejoice in Latin. We rejoice this Sunday, knowing that we are over halfway through this period of preparation and that Jesus’ coming is so close that we can feel it in our very being. We will sing, “My soul rejoices in my God” in the responsorial psalm. Let us take a moment today to put all the Christmas planning and worries aside and reflect on the wonderful gift God gave us in Jesus.  – Pastoral Patterns 2017-2018
 Scripture Readings:
First Reading: Isaiah 61: 1-2a, 10-11
Luke 1 ” My soul rejoices in my God.”
Second Reading: 1 Thessalonians 5: 16-24
Gospel Account: John 1: 6-8, 19-28
