The season of Advent
Advent is a time of preparing for the coming of Christ at Christmas, and the start of a new liturgical year. Throughout the celebration of the joyous season, we recognize this as a period of self-preparation. Thus, the purple colour is associated with Advent. The colour of pink or rose on the Third Sunday symbolizes joy and represents the happiness associated with the arrival of Jesus.
We want to celebrate the core of the Advent season and the true value behind it. The following video from Christian Brothers of the Midwest (De La Salle) illustrates the true meaning of Advent.
Let us celebrate the season together!
