Today at Mass we lit the third candle in our advent wreath. This candle represents Joy.
We know we are getting close to Christmas and close to receiving that wonderous gift the birth of Christ.
What fills us with more joy than the birth of a child. Advent is preparing for Christ's coming. We need to renew our commitment as Christians to reach out to others. Especially those who are most vulnerable. Christ did not come in robes and fully grown instead he came as a baby, vulnerable and needing our love.
Let us reach out to those in need making sure all people have food, shelter and clothing.
Everybody have a wonderful evening.
