Third Week of Advent

Prayer while lighting the Advent Wreath

God of joy, as we light our third candle, we remember how You came to us in human flesh through Your Son, Jesus and You stay with us always in the Holy Spirit.    Fill us with Your joy and help us shine as a light to the world.  We pray together, through Jesus Christ, Who makes our joy complete. Amen

Advent Actions

  1.  In the morning write the numbers 1-10 on an index card and slip it into your pocket. Throughout the day pay attention to the simple joys.  Write these down on the card and at the end of the day you have a prayer of gratitude.
  2. Pope Francis reminds us that joy can grow through pain and sorrow.  Call, email, or spend time with someone who is experiencing loss, worry or sadness. Listen, be God’s messenger of care for them.
  3. The Third Sunday of Advent is meant to be a day of joy. What brings you joy? When does your family bring joy to others?
