I Didn’t Know that “Diversity” Was a Liturgical Color

May 7th, 2010, Promulgated by Gen

I am hopeful that everyone here knows the various correct liturgical colors, even if there are liberals and schismatics included in this “everyone.” Green, violet, red, gold/white, rose and black. However, I have noticed some local priests who use rainbow stoles and the “children of God” motif, along with the commonly-seen “tapestry” variety of stole. While I favor the last one over the first two, I think I should note that I would ultimately prefer a stole which clearly and undeniably reflects solely that liturgical color appropriate to the feast or liturgy.

This being said, how would you categorize these stoles below? No, “stupid” is not an option.

Noah’s Ark Stole
Children of the World Stole
Prayer Chaplain Stole
Rainbow Stole I
Rainbow Ecumenical Stole
Fingerpaint Stole
Rainbow Stole II
I could go on, and on, and on, but I don’t want to lead you into the depths of liturgical depression. That’s why we have lay administrators – I wouldn’t want to usurp their authority. Generally, if I had to categorize them, I would say they are all in the realm of “WTF?!?!?!?!?!
No, I don’t mean what you’re thinking of with “wtf.” In this context it simply means “what’s the function.” Get your mind our of the gutter, folks.

    Actually the Noah's Arc one is pretty cool…say for the Church nursery curtains?

    lol yes

    They suggested it be used for the children's s Sunday School functions, but I think it would go a long way if the priest didn't pander. Kids aren't idiots.

    I used to have a vest made of that children of the world material. Then I turned 13 and decided it was tacky and refused to wear it anymore.
