Vestments for Immaculate conception

( number of products: 28 )

The Day of Immaculate Conception, which is also known as Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, commemorates the belief in the blameless lifetime and Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary on December 8, nine months before the feast of Mary's Nativity on September 8. It is considered one of the most significant Marian feasts in the Roman Catholic Church's liturgical calendar, and it is commemorated by Catholics all over the world.

The Immaculate Conception is a Catholic feast that commemorates Mary's sinless conception. Although this feast day falls during the Advent season, which prepares us for the birth of Our Lord Jesus Christ, the feast of Immaculate Conception refers to Mary's conception in the womb of her mother, St. Anne.

Given its name, people may think that the Feast of the Immaculate Conception commemorates Jesus' conception. However, it truly relates to Mary's conception, which becomes clear when you realize that the feast occurs only 17 days before Christmas. According to the Catholic Church, God bestowed redemption on Mary from the moment she was conceived. Not only was she so free of original sin, but she was also devoid of personal sin, as befitting her status as Jesus' mother. 

Vestments worn during immaculate conception

The color worn by a priest when celebrating Mass in the Roman Catholic Church coincides with the liturgical color of the season, which is the color that the Church has chosen for a certain period or day on the Church's calendar. The colors of the priest's vestment, including the outer gown, chasuble, and other vestments like the stole, are replicated throughout the Church. For its liturgical calendar, the Church today employs the colors black, green, red, purple, and white, with rose as an optional sixth color. The Church places a high value on each color.
