Life is much more important than food, and the body much more important than clothes. Instead, be concerned with His Kingdom, and He will provide you with these things.
Luke 12:23,31

Sunday Gospel Message - 4th Sunday of Lent

The fourth Sunday of Lent is rather unique; like the 3rd Sunday of Advent ("Gaudete Sunday"), the fourth Sunday of Lent is a break in an otherwise penitential season. The vestments for this day will be rose, and flowers may adorn the altar. This day is called Laetare Sunday (also "Rose Sunday"), and it takes its name from the opening words of the Mass, the Introit's "Laetare, Jerusalem":
"Rejoice, O Jerusalem: and come together all you that love her. Rejoice with joy, you that have been in sorrow: that you may exult, and be filled from the breasts of your consolation. I rejoiced at the things that were said to me: we shall go into the house of the Lord. Glory be to the Father."
