As We Gather:
.Today calls for rejoicing. Jesus tells the crowds that John
the Baptist is the promised messenger who has been preparing them
to meet Him, the long-awaited Messiah. Zephaniah calls for
rejoicing because the Lord is in the midst of His people. St. Paul
repeats himself as he encourages us to rejoice, because the Lord is
at hand. Our Lord came once, He will return, and even now is with
us. So rejoice!
