    Perfect purple

    Bishop John W. Yanta of the diocese of Amarillo said that Tuesday January 22 will be observed in his diocese as a "Day of Fast and Abstinence." Catholic priests in the diocese will celebrate in violet vestments, a symbol of penance in the Catholic Church.
    ...bishop has declared his diocese will observe the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision legalizing abortion in the United States, as a day of penance for Catholics... Tuesday January 22.
    "I encourage all the people of God to attend Mass that day, pray before the Blessed Sacrament, pray the rosary and witness to life," Bishop Yanta wrote.
    The day coincides with the annual National March for Life in Washington, D.C., whose 2008 theme is "Build Unity on the Life Principles throughout America. No Exception! No Compromise!"
