Liturgical Colours: A Summary - The White and The Gold

  • White or gold, a colour symbolising rejoicing and purity of soul.
  • It is worn during the liturgical seasons of Christmas and Easter.
  • White vestments are also used for feasts of our Lord (except those pertaining to His passion), the Blessed Virgin Mary, the angels, and the saints who were not martyrs.
  • White vestments are also worn on the Solemnity of St. Joseph, and the Feasts of All Saints, St. John the Baptist, St. John the Evangelist, the Chair of St. Peter, and the Conversion of St. Paul.
  • White may also be used for Masses of Christian Burial and Masses for the Dead to signify the resurrection of our Lord, when He triumphed over sin and death, sorrow and darkness.
