The third candle is pink and symbolizes joy. It is called the “Shepard's Candle,” and is pink because rose is a liturgical color for joy. ... On the fourth week of Advent, we light the final purple candle to mark the final week of prayer and penance as we wait for the birth of our Savior.

Gaudete Sunday. One of the candles surrounding the Christ Candle in the Advent wreath is rose coloured for Gaudete Sunday, the beginning of the third week in Advent.

Pink: A special color worn only twice during the liturgical year. It represents a time of joy amid a period of penance and prayer.

The fourth Sunday in Lent, coming up this Sunday, March 11, is known as Laetare Sunday. Laetare means “rejoice” in Latin, and the name is taken from the day’s Introit. (An introit is a psalm or antiphon sung or said during the opening of Holy Eucharist.) Sunday’s introit starts with the words "Laetare Jerusalem" from Isaiah 66:10.

Laetare Sunday, also sometimes called “Refreshment Sunday,” serves as a break, about midway through the penitential Lenten season, an opportunity for one day to "rejoice" and look forward, with hope, to Easter. The readings often include uplifting stories—in the Catholic church the parable of Jesus feeding the 5,000 with loaves and fishes served also as a kind of literal refreshment.

Flowers are used on the altar, and priests may wear rose-colored vestments, though Trinity’s clergy will not. The tradition of rose vestments may stem from an ancient Catholic tradition in which the pope sent golden roses to heads of state on the fourth Sunday of Lent.
