The third candle on the advent wreath,is pink and symbolises joy. It is called the Shepherd’s Candle and is pink because rose is the liturgical colour of joy The third Sunday of Advent is Gaudete Sunday and is meant to remind us of joy that the world experienced at the birth of Jesus.
We gathered together in the senior school hall to pray so that our hearts are truly prepared for the birth of Christ. Our principal Sr.Antonette lit this candle,after a short prayer service, the children enacted a skit which brought out the true meaning of joy.
As the pink candle is lit,let us be filled with joy,because joy comes from Jesus,and Christmas is all about him.
