Another New Black Vestment Set

For the feast of St Charles Borromeo, here are some pictures of a new “Borromeo-style” black vestment, made by Br. Augustine, O.F.M. Conv., from the National Shrine of St Maximilian Kolbe in Libertyville, Illinois, (a.k.a. Marytown), with our thanks to him for sharing this with our readers. In a different way from the vestment we noted two days ago, this strikes a good and appropriate balance between the somber and the hopeful, with gold decorative elements that might easily go on a red or white vestments, but laid over the basic black.
