A new (old vestment) for Good Friday arrived in the post yesterday. I used to rather despise vestments with imagery on them, even crosses, mainly I suspect because modern ones are normally in such bad taste. At the seminary I was told vestments are clothes not billboards, I agreed, now I have changed my mind.
All Christians are cross bearers, the priest above all, we carry Christ with us, He marks us with his Passion, Death and Glorious Resurrection.
At the Mass the priest as an individual is not that important, his only purpose is to be an alter Christus.
