  • The Advent season starts with the 1st Sunday of Advent, which fluctuates between November 27th and December 3rd, depending upon the year (cf. General table).
  • On December 17th a rather peculiar week starts: Advent privileged days. The 3rd week of Advent is over and the Gospels of the 17th, 18th, etc. are read (successively, until the 24th ) One of these days should coincide with a Sunday: then, the Gospel for the 4th Sunday of Advent applies.
