Friend and once-contributor John Donaghy sent me two images of a stole he uses for funerals.
His report from Honduras:
Here most of the priests use purple, though the bishop wore white for the funeral of a priest two years ago. Also, my pastor uses white occasionally, but usually purple.
But I have a personal solution. A year ago a friend of mine from Chiapas, Mexico, gave me a stole from the indigenous people of Chiapas – white with purple. I use it when I preside at funerals – not all uncommon – and I have it available when the pastor presides. It is really a priestly stole but I was able to modify it, so that it’s appropriate for deacons.
