First Reading: Rejoice. Exult. Should for joy. The prophet can command people to have a joyful attitude because he is convinced of God’s victory over every sadness and every suffering.
Second Reading: Likewise St Paul, in asking his people to be happy, is expressing his confidence in God’s presence and in his victory.
Gospel: ’What must we do?’ - people ask John the Baptist this question three times in this Gospel. It is an excellent question for us to ask during this season of Advent.
