4th Sunday of Advent Advent 2021
The guides for Advent are prominent in this last Sunday of the season leading up to Christmas. The Mass texts come from Isaias the Prophet, St. John the Baptist fulfills the prophecies in the Gospel and the Blessed Mother is honored in the Offertory and Communion. The Mass itself is connected to the December ordinations and St. Paul writes about the worthy stewards of the mysteries of the Faith. St. John calls the people to penance in preparation for Christ’s coming.
