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.
