Rejoice Sunday

Gaudete Sunday

Readings for the Day:

Isaiah 35: 1-6a,10
Psalm 146:6-10
James 5:7-10
Matthew 11:2-11

Reflection:

The Desert and the parched land will exult; the steep will rejoice and bloom. They will bloom with abundant flower and rejoice with joyful song. -isaiah 35:1-2a

Rejoice in the Lord always; again I say, rejoice. Indeed, the Lord is near. Philippians 4:4.

As we await the day of our Lord, as we walk through the Desert in anticipation, mortifying ourselves, we are reminded to be joyful for the day of our Lord is drawing closer than ever. The Lord would grant strength to the tired hands and the knees that tremble in weakness. Everyone will see God’s splendor and his mighty power.

Patience in preparedness is the key that we need to unite with our savior in his final coming, as a farmer waits for the precious fruits of the earth, so shall we be patient, with our heart firm in the coming of the Lord. May we never cast a Doubt or complain for we have the Prophets as witness for us in the total joy we shall enjoy.

Behold, the Judge is standing before the gates.

Be strong and don’t be afraid. God is coming to rescue us
