The Third Sunday of Advent...Gaudete Semper !
Today is special to Oratorians, as it is a day in which the Scripture tells us to 'rejoice always'...which St. Philip did so very well and his sons and daughters strive, stumblingly, to do also.
Fr. Joseph was the celebrant. What I remember most about the homily was his statement that true joy comes "not from papering over our sins, but from repenting of them and receiving the joy of the Lord."
