Meaning of the color: purple

Purple is a color often used during Advent and Lent and on other days of penance and preparation. Nowadays, this color is also more often used at funerals instead of black. Purple symbolizes penance, repentance and preparation and can be seen as black with a glow of light. 

The various vestments can be admired in the crypt of the church hall. So are you in the monastery, be sure to take a look at these beautiful vestments.
