What Did You See?

OK, time for a Loggia Poll..... Was your celebrant/presider/pastoral minister wearing Violet or Rose on this Gaudete Sunday?

The church queens are eager to know and will give bonus points for rose dalmatics and/or tunicles.

Immaculate Conception Parish, DC. Purple and very light rose on the celebrant. Purple dalmatic on the deacon.

Rose vestments for the celebrant. He also mentioned that in case the hope of the approaching feast of Christmas wasn't enough to bring a smile to our faces, then the sight of a priest wearing pink certainly would. (Gags.)

St. Mary Mother of God parish, Washington, D.C., 9 am Tridentine rite Mass: celebrant in rose vestments, Gothic style; excellent sermon on our failure to see Christ among us and our reason for rejoicing: Christ is near.

Purple. Our parish has no rose vestments, which I am fixing to rectify by Laetare Sunday, budget allowing.

Pink, er Rose, that is. Archbishop Emeritus Kelleher was at my Olathe, KS parish to celebrate a baptism. He said that the holidays are holy days, but if we remove the holy days from the holidays, they will become hollow days.

Father wore rose for Gaudete Sunday at Queen of Angels in So. Jersey and gave an excellent (as always) homily on the need to be fully immersed in the reflective season of Advent and on the humility of John the Baptist.

Blackfriars' Cambridge, UK: Rose vestments with rose lectern frontal and matching stoles for concelebrants!

Priest in violet, although there's a bit of rose in the pattern. Enough that I asked which color it was and he told me violet; apparently there is a rose set but it doesn't fit him well (he's pretty new here). Violet dalmatic on deacon, but again it was his first day.

Bishop Michael Cote, DD, of the Diocese of Norwich, his concelebrant and his deacon wore purple at the 5 PM (Sunday)Life Teen Mass at St. Andrew's Church, Colchester, CT.

The homily by Bp. Cote was on Our Lady of Guadalupe, whose feast is tomorrow.

In suburban Boston, rose chasuble on the presider, matching rose stole on the deacon, over an alb, sans dalmatic.

I could just make out the Rose-colored vestments through the fog of incense at St Mary the Virgin (Episcopal) in Times Square, NYC.

Holy Ghost in Denver.

Rose chasuble and a rose dalmatic on the deacon.

What can I get with my bonus points?

In the Diocese of Manchester? You bet it does!

I remember many days in St Pats after checking my mail box across the street, stopping in to say midday prayer. Only church in the City that was open.

Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption, Covington KY (easily the most beautiful church in the USA):

10.00am celebrated by the Ordinary ('Roger our Bishop' which words take on a fascinating meaning if you're into British colloquialisms) who wore violet

12.15pm celebrated by the Rector who wore brand new rose including maniple (1962 rite)

5.30pm celebrated by the Rector who wore the same brand rose, excluding maniple

The Chapel of the Immaculate Heart at Lewisham in Sydney has the regulation number of Rose copes for Solemn Vespers (5?)- of recent vintage. I wasn't there but I would be surprised if they weren't used.

5? What regulation does that meet? I'd kill for a rose cope. We sing Evening Prayer in Advent and Lent and I'd love a rose cope. I'll pay the postage if you can spare one!

They actually have seven, for Pontifical Vespers in the Old Rite - that would be useful if Boy George (the favorite name for the favorite auxiliary, a fellow Dominican of Ephraem) popped in to do Pontifical Vespers in Pink in the presence of George himself, dressed, naturally, in the Big Red Thing That Ate Cardinal Pell in Dusseldorf (resembling a Chinese-New-Year-Dragon).
