This is my first post on CAF
I’m interested to know from the Oreintal/Eastern Catholic members whether there are any specific instructions on the "donning and doffing:: of the miter during Mass/DL? Reason being as a RC the “Ceremonial of Bishops” clearly outlines this.
In the Roman Tradition, the miter is removed whenever the Bishop is praying and never worn during the Eucharistic prayer, however I’ve attended many Oriental/Eastern Liturgies where the miter is worn whenever the Bishop is praying and only removed for the Gospel and before the Consecration up until the end of the Liturgy. This norm appears to be the same whenever Latin Bishops are con-celebrating Oriental/Eastern Liturgies.
I do understand that their may well be a variety of explanations for the multiple Oriental and Eastern Traditions.
Your responses are highly appreciated.
