It's been a while since I have assisted at the Ordinary Form; the last Advent OF Mass I attended was three years ago, where my daughter and I were verbally assaulted by an usher-- a story for a different time.
In any event, I have had requests to send out a call for responses on what used to be a growing trend for priests to don blue chasubles instead of violet. The theory being, I suppose, that violet is "too" penitential for the penitentially hopeful season of Advent. Again, it has been a while, but I thought this fad had run its course.
But, in the interests of science, I ask you: Does your priest wear blue vestments in Advent?
You can answer in the combox. Feel free to name the parish-- but don't reveal the priest's identity, please.
