In a parish I attended on Laetare Sunday ( mid Lent, rejoice!) the commentator read at the start of Holy Mass..”Today is what used to be called Laetare Sunday. In days gone past, priests would wear rose coloured vestments .”
Really? In days gone past?
Then someone better explain that to our Cardinal, Cardinal Pell, celebrating Holy Mass last week on Laetare Sunday, at the installation of a new parish priest.
They don’t wear rose vestments anymore?
