Lætáre, Jerúsalem, et convéntum fácite, omnes qui dilígitis eam; gaudéte cum lætítia, qui in tristítia fuístis, ut exsultétis, et satiémini ab ubéribus consolatiónis vestræ.
Rejoice, Jerusalem! Be glad for her, you who love her; rejoice with her, you who mourned for her, and you will find contentment at her consoling breasts.
Much like on Gaudete Sunday few Catholics are likely to actually hear the reason for the name given to this Sunday. The Introit (Entrance Antiphon) will be used in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite. But, as it is very common in the Ordinary Form of the Roman Rite to replace the Entrance Antiphon with a hymn the Antiphon will probably go unheard by most Catholics.
