Interesting link, Vicki! They note the colours stand for justice, faith and power..I'd always heard equality, fidelity, nobility...similar ideas, I guess.
While I don't celebrate Lent, I was planning on honoring those that do with a small sacrifice and meditation of my own. I'm giving up "impatience with others" for these 6 weeks. I don't think I can give up impatience with myself...I'll save that for another time. I think this will be hard enough. I realize this is not a "thing", but it is a noxious habit that serves little purpose, and I think it fits well with the meditative, prayerful, and penitent reason for the season.
Wish me luck!
What are you giving up Vicki?
