Advent: What do the colours of the candles mean?

The most popular colours for the four Advent candles are violet and rose, corresponding with the colors of the liturgical vestments for the Sundays of Advent. As such, the third candle, representing joy, is often a different color from the other three. Hope is a predominant theme of Advent. The Israelites hoped for a Messiah to come, and Christ entered the world. We are hopeful for the arrival of Christ again into the world. (Catholic Herald News)
