Today is the third Sunday of Advent, Gaudete Sunday. The rose candle is lit today and the priest also wears rose colored vestments at Mass. As the USCCB website states, “Gaudete Sunday is the Sunday of rejoicing, because the faithful have arrived at the midpoint of Advent, when their preparation is now half over and they are close to Christmas.”
Here is a link to the Catholic News Agency with two short prayers for each day of the Third Week of Advent. You can use them as an introductory prayer and a closing prayer to your Advent meditation or reading.
