All Souls 

Come, let us adore the King for whom all men are alive.

Year: A(I). Psalm week: 2. Liturgical Colour: Violet or Black.

Liturgical colour: black (or violet)
Violet is the colour of penance, and black is (for most of us) the colour of mourning. One or the other is therefore used in Masses for the Dead and, in particular, on All Souls’ Day.
