Fourth Sunday in Advent

This is the long awaited, always expected something we have lived for. In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. How can one even imagine Advent without the prophet Isaiah?

Let the rivers clap their hands, * and let the hills ring out with joy before the LORD, when he comes to judge the earth. In righteousness shall he judge the world * and the peoples with equity.
