Gaudete Sunday

While Christ’s first coming transformed the meaning of suffering, it did not banish it.  His Second Coming, however, will!  At the sight of him riding upon the clouds, “sorrow and mourning will flee.”  (Isaiah 35:10)

Rejoice in Hope

This Sunday is Gaudete (Rejoice!) Sunday. Our Gospel gives us John the Baptist in prison as our meditation. Isn’t that a bit downbeat?
