I’m an altarserver and sometimes I notice that there are certain times when we must hold the bishop’s mitre and crozier and give him back his skull cap, and there are certain times during Mass when we must remove it again. Is there any symbolic meaning of this? I still find it quite confusing and somewhat complicated to remember when to remove it and when to give it back to him, but thankfully other altarservers remember I’m sure there is some sort of symbolic meaning behind this, right? (As with most other liturgical actions during the Mass)
Could anyone help me understand this?
Thanks and God bless!
