This is the third Sunday of Advent and it is called Gaudete Sunday. The third candle is lit on this day along with the first two. It is the Shepherds’ candle, reminding us that God sent the angels to proclaim His arrival to common man and that He still uses ordinary people today to spread the good news of Christ.
This Gospel reflects a different account of John the Baptist, proclaiming Jesus Christ as the Light of the World. John baptized with water, but he proclaimed that Jesus was coming to baptize in Spirit.
