THE THIRD SUNDAY OF ADVENT (Gaudete)

Gaudete literally means "rejoice," for the Lord is coming! And so on this Sunday you'll notice that the Advent purple gives way to a splash of rose. The frontal on the altar changes, the vestments of the clergy change, there are flowers, and the third candle—a rose one—is lit on the advent wreath. All of this is a bit of joy breaking into what is otherwise a penetential season. After today we return to purple for the remainder of Advent.

During Lent, we observe a similar break in the midst of a pentential season. It is known as Lataere Sunday, which also means "rejoice." It is always celebrated on the Fourth Sunday in Lent.

Collect:

Stir up thy power, O Lord, and with great might come among us; and, because we are sorely hindered by our sins, let thy bountiful grace and mercy speedily help and deliver us; through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom, with thee and the Holy Ghost, be honor and glory, world without end. Amen.

Daniel Hyde plays the second of six Grand Organ recitals on the Miller-Scott Organ. Arguably the most distinctive and progressive voice in twentieth century French music, and certainly the most significant organist-composer of any nationality since Bach, Olivier Messiaen is best known for his cycle of nine pieces entitled La Nativité du Seigneur. Written in 1935, the music speaks directly of the joy, peace and wonder of Christmas. Why not take a break from your Christmas shopping and slip into this synesthetic world of color and sound, showcasing some of the most hidden and delicate sounds of the Miller-Scott Organ?
