Last Sunday was Gaudete Sunday and as the liturgical books says, the color of the liturgical color of the day MUST BE ROSE, not pink, but ROSE, not violet or purple, but ROSE.
So I found this rare vestment worn by a young priest in Manila. He obligingly posed for me to have his photo taken albeit his face hidden for fear of jibes from hippies-priest of the aggiornamento decades. Hmm. What is it with these old guys and the splendid vestments of old? Can someone care to tell me why?
Anyways, enjoy the photos.

WONDERFUL LITURGICAL EYE CANDY!!!
I'll try to get the name and address of the one who makes these wonderful vestments. I heard that it is hand-made. Very exquisite work! She even makes a Traditional Latin Mass set! Cool!
