Why Not Wear Purple on Friday?

Friday marks another commemoration as well, which many Catholics might not know about. It’s called “Spirit Day,” an invitation to stand against bullying and violence targeting gay and lesbian students in American schools. This should be a no-brainer for Catholics, who are called by Christ to support those who suffer or struggle in any way, particularly those on the margins.
