Sister Edith Myflesh
21 January 2002
"I thought it was just a big purple mumu."
I now know more about religious garments, or vestments than I ever knew was possible. You see, Sister Betty has let me borrow her purple chasuble and matching stole during my Postulancy.

I've also found out all about the symbolism behind the colours of the vestments. It turns out that purple is for penance. Personally, I think it's a fabulous colour. And how ironic that royal purple is used by the church for penance.

Now I just need to get a cope and a cassock or two.
