THIRD SUNDAY IN ADVENT – HOLY GOSPEL: John 1:6-8, 14

There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.  7He came as a witness to testify to the light, so that all might believe through him.  8He himself was not the light, but he came to testify to the light.  14And the Word became flesh and lived among us, and we have seen his glory, the glory as of the father’s only son, full of grace and truth.
