Laetare Sunday, which fell on March 30, 2014, means joyful Sunday. On Laetare Sunday we wear pink. Lent is a period of reflection, abstinence, and repentance. Therefore at Mass it is a bit somber. The vestment colors are purple. Not that purple is lacking in joy. But pink in the midst of the cold and grey stands out. There were three of us altos in the choir who wore pink that day. And we just happened to be in the middle of the choir. So it must have looked like we were the pink heart of the choir.
