I’ve noticed over the last couple of days, while Pope Francis has been in the Middle East, that he’s been wearing red during his Mass celebrations.
Since we’re now in Advent, which is Purple, what is he doing wearing red?
I thought of two possible explanations. First, that the Pope doesn’t observe the liturgical colours of the Church year, which doesn’t make a lot of sense. Or, that the Pope is wearing red for the Christian martyrs of the Middle East.
Am I way off base?
Thanks in advance.
