Second Reading for the 3rd Sunday of Advent Year A – Gaudete Sunday

James 5:7-10

Summary: Be patient for the Lord's coming, like a farmer waiting for crops. Strengthen your hearts, avoid complaining, and follow the example of patient prophets.

Patience in the Lord

Be patient, brothers and sisters, until the coming of the Lord.

See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient with it until it receives the early and the late rains.

You too must be patient. Make your hearts firm, because the coming of the Lord is at hand.

Do not complain, brothers and sisters, about one another, that you may not be judged. Behold, the Judge is standing before the gates.

Take as an example of hardship and patience, brothers and sisters, the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord.
