The third Sunday of Advent

The third Sunday of Advent focuses on the Joy of the coming Messiah and rejoicing in the promise of the kingdom of God to come. The Earth has started turning toward the Sun once again and nature starts to look forward to the coming of warmth with Spring. Jesus' promise is that he will bring healing and life, things to celebrate and share.

This week Joan Mitchell, CSJ, brings us an Advent message and lights the third candle of the Advent wreath. As you watch and listen, we encourage you to reflect on these questions:

What are you seeing with new eyes or hearing with open ears this Advent?

What hopeful actions can you brings to those you love this season?

What broken people can you help mend?

The St. Paul Province invites you to attend this evening's Vespers service at Our Lady of the Presentation (1880 Randolph Ave., St. Paul, MN) at 4:30pm, all are welcome.
