Commemoration of deceased clergy and religious of the Vicariate 
 on Monday of week 32 in Ordinary Time

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

Year: B(I). Psalm week: 4. Liturgical Colour: Violet or Black.

Commemoration of Deceased Clergy and Religious

On this day, the Church in southern Arabia remembers all the departed clergy and religious who have laboured in the vineyard of the Lord and worked for the spread of the Gospel in the Arabian Mission.

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.
