Gaudete! He is Coming!

A Handmaid News, Priests Garden

Rejoice! It’s Gaudete Sunday! We enter the third week of Advent lighting the rose colored candles and renewing our thanksgiving for the Incarnation. He is coming. He is coming to save us. He is coming to be one of us. This gives us all hope and joy, but not for the secular trappings of the coming holidays. It’s not about the presents. It’s about His Presence.

We share a dawn view of the Mary, Mother of Priests Tribute Garden with the violet of night fading into the rose colored dawn. The God of this beauty and creation cares to become an infant in a manger.
