Why no Gloria?

Why did we omit the Gloria at Lent and Advent?:rolleyes:

Hi,

The season of Lent is penitential, so the liturgy take on a more serious tone. We also haven’t had any alleluias and those of us who pray the Liturgy of the Hours have not prayed the Te Deum at the Office of Readings. These things return on Easter Sunday as we rejoice in the Lord’s Resurrection…
