Waiting for the Prince of Peace

The advent wreath is a tradition in my country.  Puprple is the classic color for three of the four Sundays of Advent: once the color associated with royalty, it symbolizes Christ as the “Prince of Peace.” Rose is the color for the Third Sunday of Advent, known as Gaudete Sunday from the Latin word “rejoice.”

It is custom to lit the candles in the late afternoon, eating stollen and singing Christmas carols.  Today all four candles were lit.

Es ist ein Ros entsprungen

 

About Michaela

I am a wanderer and a wonderer, like you are. I love our journey and to walk in the company of friends – to learn, experience, share, laugh, cry and above all I simply love this marvelous, magical, mysterious life. I have no plan (cannot believe I am saying this) and my only intention is to be truthful to myself and others.
