Monday of week 34 in Ordinary Time 

Let us rejoice in the Lord, with songs let us praise him.

Year: A(I). Psalm week: 2. Liturgical Colour: Green.

Other saints: Saint Ferga (c.700 - 784)
Ireland: 27 Nov
Aberdeen: 18 Nov
He is also known as Vergilius of Salzburg. He was born of a noble family and educated in the monastery at Iona. In 745 he left Ireland on pilgrimage. He settled in France, as many Irish pilgrims seem to have done at that time, and was then invited to Bavaria by Duke Odilo. He founded the monastery of Chiemsee, and later became Abbot of St Peter’s at Salzburg. He engaged in controversy with St Boniface, but on Boniface’s martyrdom he became his successor as Bishop of Salzburg in 766 or 767.

Liturgical colour: green
The theological virtue of hope is symbolized by the colour green, just as the burning fire of love is symbolized by red. Green is the colour of growing things, and hope, like them, is always new and always fresh. Liturgically, green is the colour of Ordinary Time, the season in which we are being neither especially penitent (in purple) nor overwhelmingly joyful (in white).
