E. SEPTUAGESIMA AND THE SEASON OF LENT

Previous | Index | Next



GENERAL OBSERVANCES.

(1) The Color of the Vestments. The color of this season is violet.

(2) Septuagesima, Sexagesima, and Quinquagesima Sundays. On these Sundays, flowers may or may not, as custom prescribes, adorn the altar. If the Mass on these Sundays is a solemn one, the deacon and subdeacon wear dalmatics. At any other time, in this season, viz. from Ash Wednesday to Easter, the deacon and subdeacon wear instead of the dalmatics the folded chasubles, which are always violet in color except on Good Friday when they are black. If folded chasubles are not available, then dalmatics are also not worn nor does the deacon wear the broad stole.

(3) The Fourth Sunday of Lent. (Laetare Sunday). On this Sunday, rose-colored vestments may be worn and flowers may adorn the altar.

(4) The covering of Crucifixes, Statues and Pictures. From Passion Sunday until the Gloria of the Mass on Holy Saturday, all statues, pictures, and crucifixes in the church and sacristy are to be covered with plain purple veils. No figure or ornament is allowed on these veils. These veils are not to be removed under any circumstances, except from the crucifix on Good Friday.
