Ornáta Régis Púrpura

‘Before the first Vespers of Passion Sunday all statues and images (including crucifixes) in the church which are objects of veneration and not merely ornamental, are to be covered with a plain opaque violet veil.’


‘No figure or ornament is allowed on these veils.’



‘The images are not to uncovered for any reason (except the crosses on Good Friday) till the veils are removed at the GLORIA IN EXCELSIS at the first Easter Mass.’

Fortescue, O’Connell and Reid
