For Parents To Teach To Their Children
Source: USCCB.org. Mark, Chapter 1:14-20
“After John had been arrested,
Jesus came to Galilee proclaiming the gospel of God:
‘This is the time of fulfillment.
The kingdom of God is at hand.
Repent, and believe in the gospel.’”
As he passed by the Sea of Galilee,
he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting their nets into the sea;
they were fishermen.
Jesus said to them,
‘Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men.’
Then they abandoned their nets and followed him.
He walked along a little farther
and saw James, the son of Zebedee, and his brother John.
They too were in a boat mending their nets.
Then he called them.
So they left their father Zebedee in the boat
along with the hired men and followed him.”

Learning About The Liturgical Colors
“Liturgical Colors” from Church and Liturgical Objects and Terms
“White and Gold:
White symbolizes light, purity, innocence, joy, and glory. It is used on certain feast days and during Christmas and Easter Season. It may also be used in Masses for the dead.
Green, the natural color of life, points to the hope of life eternal. It is used in Ordinary Time.
Violet symbolizes melancholy and somberness. It is used in penitential seasons (Advent and Lent), and may be used in Masses for the dead.
Red connotes both fire and blood. It is used on the feasts of martyrs, on Masses of the Holy Spirit, on the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, on Palm Sunday, and on similar feasts.
Rose symbolizes joy in the midst of a penitential season (rose being between violet and white). It may be worn only on two days in the year: Gaudete Sunday (Third Sunday of Advent) and Laetare Sunday (Fourth Sunday of Lent).”
