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.
