Gaudete!

A beautiful morning brought out the crowds to the Cathedral for the 10.30am Mass. This third Sunday of Advent is known as 'Gaudete' ('Rejoice!) Sunday, from the opening word of the Introit, or entry verse, but it also signals a joyful anticipation of the birth of our Saviour. The tone lightens - literally; the normal purple colour of the vestments and altar hangings is replaced by a lighter hue of rose. Below, Fr Christopher proclaims the Gospel at the 12.00 Mass.
