◉ Priest Clothes

◉ Colours of the Vestments

Each of these colours has its own meaning. When the church denotes purity, innocence, or glory, she uses white, that is, on the feasts of our Lord and of the Blessed Virgin, on the festivals of angels and of all saints who were not martyrs. Red is the colour of fire and of blood; it is used in masses of the Holy Ghost, such as on Pentecost, to remind us of the tongues of fire and on the feasts of all saints who shed their blood for their faith. The purple or violet is expressive of penance; it is used during Lent and Advent (except on Saints’ day), and also on the sorrowful festival of the Holy Innocents. Green is the colour that denotes the growth and increase of our holy Church, and is also symbolic of hope; it is used at various times of the year, on the days that are not saints’ days. Black was the colour of death and of mourning; it was used on Good Friday, All Souls Day, and at funerals and requiems, but the black is no longer in use. Gold may be used as a substitute for white, red or green.
