From Whence My Drive for Beautiful Vestments
As a boy I remember noticing from an early age that vestments used at Mass were ugly and modern. It was the eighties. Call it a prompting from the Holy Spirit; it bothered me from the beginning.
Then as an altar boy at the church of the Assumption in Saint Paul I discovered this lovely Gothic set. It changed my life forever. I had discovered vestments worthy of service in the holy of holies.
By God's grace this set is still there today. I don't think it has been used in fifty years.
Beauty at the service of the altar is ever old and ever new.
