2020 has been a tough year, and though there is light at the end of the tunnel with the emergency approval this week of the first covid vaccines, we still have some dark and challenging months ahead. Stay safe and well. On this third Sunday of Advent, in this year of the great pandemic, we light the candle of JOY. We light it in faith, trusting in the many promises of joy and invitations to rejoice found in our scriptures. This is the day the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it!
