Priest, garbed in crimson,
exits the Lady Chapel.
Candle-smoke … floating.
Wellington’s Cathedral of St Paul (Anglican) has a lovely Lady Chapel, which was formerly the parish church of St Paul’s in Paraparaumu; the cathedral’s website explains. And here is a link to Wikipedia’s explanation of the words, Ite, missa est.
This being Advent, the cathedral’s high altar was decorated with purple over white. I was surprised, therefore, to see “the Tuesday lunchtime priest” wearing a crimson chasuble; but then looked into the Lady Chapel and saw its altar frontal was crimson. Did he choose a chasuble to match the altar? or did he dress the altar to co-ordinate with his chosen attire?
