Dec. 14 – Third Week – Sunday

3candles

Today is the third Sunday of Advent, also known as Gaudete (Rejoicing) Sunday. Today, we light the third candle on our Advent wreath. For some, it is the day to put up the Christmas tree because we know that Christmas is near.

Activity:
Spend time together as a family getting ready for Christmas together — decorate the tree, have a picnic dinner by the Christmas tree, play a board game.

Quote for the day:
“The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree is the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other.” ~ Burton Hillis

Gospel for the day: John 1:6-8, 19-28
