This Sunday, the third one in Advent is known as Gaudete Sunday Rejoice Sunday.
The readings force us to ask ourselves: what makes us really happy?
The answer is : We have Jesus to make us happy. He wants to be our companion. His companionship and friendship is an encounter with God himself, who is Love and whose love is real for each of us.
Our encounter with Christ is happiness everlasting.
May the final days before Christmas be for you and your families days of authentic joy, His Joy.
