From a priest reader:
Father, any chance of a discussion and/or priests’ poll about the color of cope (or any cope at all) used for Stations of the Cross? When I speak to priests about this, there seems to be a great deal of variety.
Gee. I’ve always thought purple worked pretty well, given that it is Lent.
I suppose one could use black, because of the color of vestments traditionally used for Good Friday.
However, the feast of the Exaltation of the Cross needs red.
We could use some discussion of this.
Also, let’s have a poll.
What do you usually see at your parish or chapel for Stations of the Cross.
PS: This means you have to go to Stations! Right?
