"whatever you do, whether in
speech or in action, do it in the name of the Lord Jesus. Give
thanks to the Father through Him" - Colossians 3:17
"This color is permitted, in place of the purple, on the Third
Sunday of advent (Gaudete) and on the Fourth Sunday of Lent (Laetere),
when the Church tempers the sadness of the penitential seasons with
an invitation to rejoice in the goodness of God our Savior."
