Our Weekly Liturgy Lesson - 3rd Sunday of Advent, Gaudete Sunday (Cycle C) Can Help Kids to Understand the Gospel.
Use this Weekly Liturgy Lesson - 3rd Sunday of Advent, Gaudete Sunday (Cycle C) to help teach children that we must rejoice for Christ is coming. The inspiration for this lesson is the Gospel of St. Luke 3:10-18.
In this week’s Gospel, St. John the Baptist explains to any who’ll listen that they must come to God with a repentant heart, and they must live according to such virtues as justice, charity, and honesty. Although some believe St. John to be the Christ, the Prophet gives them a clear message that he is not the Messiah. St. John assures his followers that the Savior is coming and that the Christ will be much greater than himself.
