Advent Reading

Luke 2 says: in the same region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with great fear. And the angel said to them, "Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.

Prepare the way of the Lord. We light this candle in joy, for Jesus makes joy from our sorrow.

Prepare the way of the Lord.
