TUESDAYS WITH TERESA: Rejoice

October 09, 2018 Teresa Brierley

The following TUESDAYS WITH TERESA article is from the week of 18 December. Please disregard the date listed.

I don’t imagine there were too many priests in our diocese who wore rose coloured vestments on Sunday to mark the third Sunday of Advent or what we call Gaudete Sunday. The term Gaudete refers to the first word of the Entrance Antiphon, Rejoice – “Rejoice in the Lord always, again I say, rejoice. Indeed, the Lord is near.” Rose vestments are worn to emphasise our joy that Christmas is near, and the rose candle on our Advent wreath is also lit.
