Color Used In Lent - Poem by Margaret Moran
Color of pain and
Suffering also royalty
Awakens new hope
Poet's Notes about The Poem
The colors used in the Lenten Liturgy remind us of the pain and suffering of Jesus leading up to the Crucifixion, suffering humanity, and the pain and suffering of sin in the world. Purple is also the color of royalty. So we can anticipate the coming Resurrection and the hope of newness.
