Colours Used During Patriarchal Masses

 

1. Masses celebrated by the Archfather or else presided by the Archfather in grand choral habit used only two colours, red or white, in accordance with the colours associated with St. Stephen and ancient Byzantine custom.

2. Gold or silver may substitute for white. Red is used when the specified liturgical colour is red, purple, rose, or black. White, gold, or silver is used when the specified colour is white or green.

3. All wearing liturgical vestments wear the same colour.

4. If a mass is presided over by the Archfather in grand choral habit or mozzetta, then the usual liturgical colour as prescribed in the Ordo Calendar and rubrics is used by the Sacred Ministers, but the Archfather uses only red or white as appropriate to the liturgy.
