Advent is a penitential season of 4 weeks preparation for the Festival of Christmas. There are changes in the Liturgy – the Preparation and Confession are in the middle of the service, the Gloria is not said and the Third Order of the Consecration is used and the second option is used where provided. There are no flowers in Advent and the liturgical colour is purple.
