All candle companies I’ve dealt with over the years have shipped us a pink item, not rose. Our parish’s Advent candle was pink, despite Fr Dennis’s insistence that it was rose. He conceded it wasn’t “manly” or “burly” enough for him to vary from Advent violet–which is an option, of course.
In other fashion news, I knew a priest who once wore a pink (not rose) stole to go with his violet chasuble–outside the garment, of course. That was not an inspiring combination, I can report.
What did you see in your own parishes or if you were traveling? How much of a variety of rose was there within your parish: vestments, banners, candles, etc.? Sit, if you will, in the armchair of liturgy and tell us how you would have done things differently.
