Blue vestment sighting

Over at NLM there is a post with photos of Holy Masses for the Feast of the Assumption.  There are some stunners, of course.

One set caught my eye.  They are of Pontifical Vespers celebrated by the abbot at Heiligenkreutz.

Note the blue vestments.

Lovely blue cope.

We of the Tridentine Mass Society of the Diocese of Madison have been raising funds for more Pontifical Vestments, including folded chasubles, a set in black, a set in rose and also a set in blue.   There are whiners out there about the blue.  We don’t care.  They won’t be used in Advent, for that would be really wrong.  But for Assumption?  Yep.   This is, after all the pontificate of mercy.  In our consciences we have determined that we want a blue pontifical set and that we will use it and that, in mercy, you have to “accompany” us.

    There was a beautiful blue-hued vestment at my home parish while I was growing up, but it was mainly white and used for Marian feasts only. Mainly white, but bluish cast and blue trim.
