Mommy Moments - Purple
Today is the second Friday of Lent and in the Catholic Liturgy, the color purple is used in the Catholic Church during this time. Purple is used for two reasons: firstly because it is associated with mourning and so anticipates the pain and suffering of the crucifixion, and secondly because purple is the color associated with royalty, and celebrates Christ's resurrection and sovereignty.
I find the color purple a sad color, and so this is not a color that we usually wear, unless it is paired with a brighter, happier color like pink. But since I have a son, I don't think purple and pink is a good combination of colors for his clothes. : )
This was when Joaqui received an award for being "Most Courteous" during the 1st Trimester Reading of Honors for the Preschool Division.
More of the color purple here. Have a blessed weekend!
