  • Green symbolises hope and life, just as the hint of green on trees in early Spring arouses the hope of new life.
  • Green is used during the liturgical season called Ordinary Time.
  • This season focuses on the three-year period of our Lord’s public ministry, and the Gospel passages, particularly on Sundays, recount His teachings, miracles, exorcisms, and other deeds during this time.

    • The life we share now with Him in the community of the Church and through His sacraments.
    • and we look forward to sharing everlasting life with Him perfectly in Heaven.
