Real celibates don’t wear pink.

Is there a liturgical reason that the color is emphatically “rose” and not “pink”? Or just that guys prefer to not like to dress in pink vestments? Because I’ve got to be honest, I know a priest who really liked pretty vestments and he always said rose.

So, yeah, I don’t know where I was going with that, except that it made me laugh inappropriately during the lecture tonight, which was totally not my fault.

Oh, happy Advent, everybody! Have a kind-of-good-but-still-solemn good time!
