Why Will Your Priest Be Pretty in Pink onSunday?

If not exactly "pretty," he probably will be wearing rose colored vestments. The third Sunday of Advent is Gaudete Sunday, so called from the first word of the Introit at Mass (Gaudete, i.e. Rejoice). This is our sign that Advent is almost over and we may look forward with greater joy than ever to the Lord's coming as there will be only one more Sunday in Advent ... and then it will be Christmas!

Read more at New Advent.

  1. In my days as an Anglo-Catholic sacristan I would be in the pub right now arguing with the priest about which rose set to use. We had four - only used twice a year they last so long. I used to love gaudete Sunday - I do hope it is still kept.
