Bulletin Insert for 3rd Sunday of Advent, December 15, 2019.
Description: Joy is the theme of the 3rd Sunday of Advent. As it says in Isaiah 35:1-6a, 10, “Be strong, fear not! Here is your God, he comes with vindication to rescue you!” This is the reason for our joy. We have been ransomed from sin and its destruction; Jesus paid the price through his terrible sacrifice on the cross. This is why Jesus came to earth to be born as one of us: to rescue us from the horrors of an eternal separation from God and his love. Compared to eternity, our current problems are little, very little indeed.
This bulletin insert invites your parishioners to reflect on the questions: What are you unhappy about? Can you find joy in the trial? — because God will make good come out of the suffering if you want to use it for the benefit of others. What is Jesus telling you in your prayer time? What hug is he giving you?
