Carta del Párroco | Cuarto Domingo de Cuaresma Laetere

Mar 24, 2022
Ordinary Time

Welcome to River Oaks Church, your trusted source for faith and beliefs in the community. In this letter, we are sharing important insights from our pastor regarding the significance of the fourth Sunday of Lent, commonly known as Laetare Sunday.

Understanding Laetare Sunday

Laetare Sunday falls on the fourth Sunday of Lent, usually around the midpoint of this forty-day period leading up to Easter. The term "Laetare" comes from the Latin word for "rejoice," emphasizing the shift toward happiness and hope amidst the season of penance and reflection.

On this special Sunday, the liturgical colors may change from the usual purple to a rose or pink hue, symbolizing a momentary break from the solemnity of Lent, and marking the nearness of the joyous occasion of Easter.

Inspiring Reflection and Renewal

Laetare Sunday serves as a reminder to reflect on the purpose of our Lenten journey and renew our commitment to spiritual growth. It offers an opportunity to rejoice in the progress we have made so far, as well as to draw strength and inspiration for the remainder of the season.

During this time, our congregation comes together, fostering a sense of togetherness and collective celebration. We encourage you to join our vibrant community as we embrace the teachings of Christ and seek personal transformation.
