Default The Gloria and Advent.

During Advent I noticed we are not singing the "Gloria" at mass, is there a reason for this?
thanks in advance for your answer

Default Re: The Gloria and Advent.

The Church directs us to omit the Gloria during the penitential seasons of Advent and Lent. This is found both in the Ordo and in the rubrics.

Default Re: The Gloria and Advent.

And, the words of the Gloria, at least the first lines, are taken from the Angelic proclamation of Jesus' birth...which we are preparing for. To say it on Sundays of Advent would be getting ahead of ourselves. (But, we still say it on Solemnities and Feasts during Advent.)
