Since today is Laetare (Rejoice) Sunday, the priests are supposed to wear rose to mark the joyous half-way point to Easter. Now, the priest at the Mass I attended today wore violet. I had to lector today, and I know he was aware that rose vestments were to be worn, because someone pointed it out to him before Mass, but he chose to wear violet. Then I questioned myself. Is there an option of wearing rose or violet today? I thought there was, but I wasn't sure.
My first thought is that wearing rose is optional, it it not a "have to"
It's up to the priest? Any one feel free to correct me, bit my understanding is that the priest does not have to wear rose. It's his choice.
