The vestments worn by the priest when celebrating mass are then the most important.
By the sub-committee of Convocation in their Report (1908) these vestments are wrongly classed as copes, i.e.
In his Vestments as Supreme Pontiff.
In England red vestments are worn at the mass (of the Holy Spirit) attended by the Roman Catholic judges and barristers at the opening of term, the so-called "Red Mass."
Violet vestments are also worn on days of intercession, at votive masses of the Passion, at certain other masses of a pronouncedly intercessory and penitential character, at intercessory processions, at the blessing of candles on Candlemas Day, and at the blessing of the baptismal water.
