Gaudete Sunday

The third Sunday of Advent is known as ‘Gaudete Sunday.’

In his 2014 Gaudete Sunday homily, Pope Francis said that Gaudete Sunday is known as the “Sunday of joy,” and that instead of fretting about “all they still haven’t” done to prepare for Christmas, people should “think of all the good things life has given you.”

This Sunday, the rose coloured candle will be lit on the Advent Wreath.

The third Sunday of Advent is rose (pink) because pink symbolises joy, the joy that Jesus is almost here.
