Daily Trivia

Q: What four colors are liturgically valid during the season of Lent or some part thereof, including Sundays but excluding the two Solemnities that fall in March (Joseph and the Annunciation)?

A: purple, black, red, and rose (optional for the 4th Sunday of Lent). Notice that white should be worn for the Solemnity of Joseph and the Annunciation (which were excluded, since they don't always fall during Lent), and for the Feast of the Lord's Supper on Holy Thursday, which was excluded because its celebration marks the end of Lent. Red is worn on Palm Sunday.

Aha! My friend, you forgot one color that is liturgically valid "during ... Lent ... including Sundays".

The color is RED, which is worn on Palm Sunday.

God bless you.

PS: You didn't explain when BLACK vestments may be worn. Are you thinking of funerals, or can black be worn for other reasons during Lent?

Black can be worn on Good Friday, although it no longer is in most places.
