The third Sunday of Advent is also known as "Gaudete Sunday." The Latin word '#Gaudete,' meaning rejoice, comes from the entrance antiphon for that day: "Gaudete in Domino semper; iterum dico, gaudete. Dominus enim prope est" (Rejoice in the Lord always; again, I say, rejoice. Indeed, the Lord is near). This is taken from Philippians 4:4-5.
.
The season of Advent is a preparation both for the celebration of the Lord's first coming (Christmas) and for his second coming, the final judgment. On its third Sunday, we're already more than half way through and we joyfully anticipate the nearness of the Lord's coming. Even today's Mass Readings have for their theme Christian joy and the wonderful works of the Lord. This is also the reason for the rose-colored vestments and the lighting of the rose (pink) candle on the Advent wreath.
.
Brothers and sisters, awaken from your slumber! Let's abandon our old ways and turn to the promise of eternal happiness that awaits us! The Lord is very near! Let us rejoice in Him always!

...They asked him, "Why then do you baptize if you are not the Christ or Elijah or the Prophet?" John answered them, "I baptize with water; but there is one among you whom you do not recognize, the one who is coming after me, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to untie."
.
This happened in Bethany across the Jordan, where John was baptizing.

"Am I not here, I, who am your mother? Are you not under my shadow and protection? Are you not in the hollow of my mantle, the crossing of my arms? Am I not the source of all your joy? What more do you need? Let nothing else worry you, disturb you."

This is what the Virgin Mary told St. Juan Diego at Tepeyac Hill. She speaks the same words to us even today. Whatever difficulties you are facing, never forget that Mary cares for you.
.
O Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee!

"Mission is not about geography; it is about the spirit. It is not about territory; it is about attitude. It is not about where a friar is sent; it is about his consciousness of himself as one being sent to some frontier where the light of the Lord is absent or shines dimly." —Rev. Fr. Louie R. Coronel, O.P.

On the eve of the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, as we move towards our tenth year as a Lay Dominican chapter-in-formation, we humbly place this group —all its work, its pains, hopes, plans, and all its members past, present, and future— under the powerful and unfailing protection of the glorious Virgin Mary, Mother of God, Nuestra Señora del Santísimo Rosario.
.
As a sign of this perpetual dedication and with the blessing of our Reverend Father Spiritual Director, our Formator, and our Brother-President, our members have approved this new emblem. May She who is Mother of Mercy and Refuge of sinners welcome such unworthy sons in her arms.
.
We humbly invoke the prayers of her servants, our blessed fathers Dominic de Guzman and Thomas Aquinas.
