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.
