The Third Sunday in Advent (Gaudete Sunday)
Celebrant: Surely the Lord is coming soon.
People: Amen. Come Lord Jesus!
O Lord Jesus Christ, you sent your messengers the prophets to preach repentance and prepare the way for our salvation: Grant that the ministers and stewards of your mysteries may likewise make ready your way, by turning the hearts of the disobedient toward the wisdom of the just, that at your second coming to judge the world, we may be found a people acceptable in your sight; for with the Father and the Holy Spirit you live and reign, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Because you sent your beloved Son to redeem us from sin and death, and to make us heirs in him of everlanting life; that when he shall come again in power and great glory to judge the world, we may without shame or fear rejoice to behold his appearing.
