IF THIS ISN'T ROSE, I DON'T KNOW WHAT IS!

Did your priest use rose colored vestment for last Sunday's Gaudete Sunday? Needless to say I did with rose colored vestments in my new parish church's sacristy.

This was taken following our 11 AM Mass when I blessed our new Pro-life Memorial created and executed by one of our Boy Scouts as an Eagle Scout project. His name is Marcus Debry. I am very grateful to him and all his helpers. It took months for him to complete. The pro-life memorial contains a huge boulder with the memorial plaque on it and the statue of our Blessed Mother, our ultimate pro-life advocate.

Oddly or scary enough, this photo was sent to me by a priest friend in Pensacola who saw it on twitter or Facebook.  Nothing is hidden anymore! But alas, this isn't "false News!"

It may be "rose" in the eye of a beholder with his own personal color spectrum. But it is NOT the color specified by the Latin word rosacea, the liturgical vestment color, which "has a slight orangish-red tint to it, sort of like a fresh salmon filet". If the garish pink vestment you show is not a violation of liturgical law, it ought to be. Here's our Knoxville attempt:

Happy Birthday to you,
Your progressive friends, too,
And your off the wall Vatican
It resembles a zoo!
