As I thought the other week, and it being this time of year, the issue of Folded Chasubles and the Broad Stole has returned to my mind and to those of others.
The New Liturgical Movement has reissued an excellent article about the history and use of these particular vestments which it first carried in 2009. It is a lengthy piece, but very well worth reading, and can be found here.
Readers will doubtless not be surprised that I would be very pleased to see the return of these historic forms of the vestment for penitential occasions. They are part of the liturgical heritage of the Church, and their loss was one of the early symptoms of change for change's sake.
