Rejoice Always!

Advent Wreath Rejoice (for Gaudete Sunday)

Sharing with you a reflection from our Holy Father Pope Francis for the Year of Consecrated Life:

None of us should be dour, discontented and dissatisfied, for “a gloomy disciple is a disciple of gloom”. Like everyone else, we have our troubles, our dark nights of the soul, our disappointments and infirmities, our experience of slowing down as we grow older. But in all these things we should be able to discover “perfect joy”. For it is here that we learn to recognize the face of Christ, who became like us in all things, and to rejoice in the knowledge that we are being conformed to him who, out of love of us, did not refuse the sufferings of the cross.

Wishing you a happy Gaudete Sunday!
