Mass: 3rd Sunday of Advent

Welcome to today's Mass. Today is the 3rd Sunday in Advent, also called Gaudate Sunday. We are in a celebratory mood this Sunday and have a theme of "Rejoice in the Lord always" (Gaudete in Domino semper...). We also think of John the Baptist and you will notice that in our choice of hymns: we have one of my favourites, "On Jordan's bank the Baptist's cry."

 On the technical front, we seem to have got the sound well this week.
