Parament

It's Sunday, y'all!

And the liturgical color for this season in the life of the church is white. Which is to say that white is the color of the season after Easter. White for light, white for purity, white for Easter. Many, many churches are going to be decked out in white paraments (liturgical cloths and coverings) until the Day of Pentecost comes.

Just in case someone might be wondering... Pentecost this year will be May 31st.

Soli Deo Gloria!

Very nice. In the early church, they used whatever happened to be their best for Eastertide.
