“Gaudete in Domino semper” – Rejoice in the Lord always! (Philippians 4:4)
Although this song is technically a Christmas hymn (Gaudete! Christus est Natus!), and we are not quite there yet, I thought it would be good to share this one today, to get us all spiritually looking forward to that moment.
“Gaudete in Domino semper” – Rejoice in the Lord always!
“These words of St. Paul open the Holy Mass of the third Sunday of Advent, which is therefore called Gaudete Sunday. The Apostle exhorts Christians to rejoice because the coming of the Lord – that is, his glorious return – is certain and won’t be long in coming.” — Pope Benedict XVI, Gaudete Sunday 2007
