The month of November is dedicated to the Souls in Purgatory, whose feast is celebrated on November 2. With the exception of the last three days, the entire month of November falls during the liturgical season known as Tempus per Annum or Ordinary Time (formerly Time After Pentecost), which is represented by the liturgical color green. Green is a symbol of hope, as it is the color of the sprouting seed and arouses in the faithful the hope of reaping the eternal harvest of heaven, especially the hope of a glorious resurrection. The liturgical color green is worn during the praying of Offices and the celebration of Masses of Ordinary Time. The last portion of the liturgical year represents the time of our pilgrimage to heaven during which we hope for reward. On the last Sunday, which marks the beginning of Advent, the liturgical color changes to purple, representing a time of penance.
