Lighting of the Advent Candles
3rd Sunday in Advent - Year C
December 13th, 2015
Here's a litany for the lighting of the 3rd advent candle for the 3rd Sunday in Advent (Year C), December 13th, 2015.
Without joy, we have no fulfillment to our lives.
As we continue the season of Advent,
we wait in joyful anticipation
of the happiness the Christ-child will bring to a world that needs it so desperately.
We seek to live as a people of joy
that share it with everyone we encounter,
to bless others with the happiness we have in Jesus Christ.
We light this candle to symbolize the joy we have in Christ's presence.
We gather to share this joy with one another.
