The month of April is dedicated to The Holy Spirit. Depending on the year (see list of feasts below), either part or all of April falls during the Easter season. Once Lent ends, for which the liturgical color is purple (a symbol of penance, mortification and the sorrow of a contrite heart), the season of Easter ushers in the liturgical color of white — the color of light, a symbol of joy, purity and innocence (absolute or restored).
