Just reading that word brings a smile to my face.
Joy comes in all shapes and sizes, doesn’t it?
Joy is the feeling of pleasure or happiness.
When was the last time you witnessed or experienced true joy? I hope that the answer to that question is that you experience it daily because I believe that is how God created us. I truly believe that we are created to bring joy and happiness to one another.
During this time of year I think it is easy to witness joy especially on the faces of children as they anticipate the wonders of Christmas time. All of the twinkling lights, bright decorations and happy Christmas music bring joy to even the most hardened of hearts.
The third candle is usually a pink candle. It is called the Shepherd’s Candle and is pink because rose is a liturgical color for joy. The third Sunday of Advent is Gaudete Sunday and is meant to remind us of the joy that the world experienced at the birth of Jesus, as well as the joy that the faithful have reached the midpoint of Advent.
