Sunday, December 14: Vespers of Gaudete Sunday (3rd Sunday of Advent)

Sunday, December 14, 15:00 (3:00 PM)

 Vespers of the 3rd Sunday of Advent
with Benediction
Hebdomadary: Rev. Fr. Eugene Sta.Ana

4080 Hawk St, San Diego, CA 92103

Join us at St. Vincent de Paul church to celebrate  Vespers of Gaudete Sunday in Gregorian chant! The 3rd Sunday of Advent is thus named after the first word in the Epistle's reading, where St. Paul recommends we should Rejoice in the Lord always. Advent is an intense liturgical season of joyful  penance and preparation not only to celebrate Christmas, the birth in the flesh of the eternal Word of God, but also to look forward to His second coming at the end of times. The more festive character of Gaudete Sunday  is made visible by the celebrant wearing rose vestments, instead of purple.

We invite you to attend Sunday Vespers of the at St. Vincent de Paul. The Magnificat antiphon of this Sunday sings of the bleeding woman, who is healed the moment she humbly touches the hem of  Christ's garment: she believed and was saved. If we trust in Our Lord, being true God and true man, and approach Him in all humility, He will heal us of all our infirmities and grant us everlasting life.
