advent 3The third Sunday of Advent is also called Gaudete Sunday. Gaudete, a Latin word means “rejoice.” This theme is found in today’s second reading from the first Letter to the Thessalonians, 1 Thes 5:16-24. It is a reminder that Advent is a season of joy because our salvation is already at hand.

In the Gospel for today Jn 1:6-8, 19-28 Jesus is presented as the fulfillment of the prophet Isaiah and the culmination of the Word, the light that is coming into the world’s darkness.

John the Baptist received unwarranted attention from the religious authorities. Messengers from the priests, the Levites and the Pharisees question John about his identity and the meaning of the baptisms he is performing. John’s Gospel uses these questions to show the relationship between Jesus and John the Baptist. John the Baptist is not the Messiah, or a long-dead prophet.

The only affirmative response that John the Baptist gives is when he quotes Isaiah Is 61:1-2a, 10-11. Upon answering the next question, John announces that the savior is already among them, but yet unrecognized. John’s response highlights for us an important Advent theme: Jesus has already come into the world as our savior. During Advent, we pray that we will be able to recognize Jesus’ presence in others. Advent also reminds us that Jesus will come again to fulfill the promise of salvation. We pray that we will continue to be watchful as we look forward to that wonderful day.

Isaiah, and John have been blessed with God’s spirit and send to bring the message of joy, healing, peace, and comfort to people in need, and prepare the way of the Lord. Are you willing be a messenger? Are you ready to carry a message of hope home from Sunday’s mass today? Are you ready to proclaim that message to a world that sorely needs it?
