In this reflection for the Third Sunday of Advent, Gaudete Sunday, 2021, Kristen Fisher shows how the Gospel this week is all about Joy, which doesn’t come from having stuff, and that we can only get it from the Lord as he comes to dwell in our midst, not just in the world in general, but in the very depths of each of us.
We find in the lives of the saints all throughout the past 2000 years, we find sick people, imprisoned people, suffering people full of joy, because joy is not about what’s going on around us. It’s about who has come to live inside of us. This is the whole point. Jesus is coming. He came at Christmas 2000 years ago.
