Sancta Missa


By Rev. William A. O'Brien, M.A.

C. The Color of the Vestments for Benediction

Previous | Index | Next

The color should be white. However, if Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament follows immediately after Mass or the recitation of the Divine Office so that the celebrant does not retire from the sanctuary, and the Benediction, although the litany be chanted, is not regarded as a function entirely distinct and separate, the same color that was used for the Mass or Office, provided it was not black, may be retained. The same tabernacle veil and antependium may also be retained. The humeral veil is always white.
