Wear pink and rejoice!

Tomorrow is Gaudete Sunday. I am reminding others to wear pink here to celebrate; one of our Sisters who is 98 years old, always wears pink on Sundays. It is a cheerful color and we will light the pink candle on the Advent wreath.

Saturdays are busy days for everyone. I think we all try to prepare for Sunday, but it often is not a day of rest for those who work all week. Still, many are able to have some quiet time at home on Sunday if they are busy on Saturday. Leisure time is necessary to really enter the spirit of Advent. If we are on the go all day, at least we can say often "Come, Lord Jesus, cone! I believe that our desire for the coming of the Lord is one of the graces of Advent.
