For the Canticum Clericorum Romanum
(Epistles and Gospels book)
This is a rose Canticum cover exclusively made by The Hem of His Garment for use on Gaudete and Laetare Sundays when the Roman custom of wearing rose-colored vestments is employed to signify a sense of subdued joy that the penitential labors of Advent and Lent are nearly complete.
The choice of the salmon shade of rose fabric is in conformity with the Roman Rose, which is more pastel, not pink.
As with our other Canticum covers, our rose cover has been expertly sewn for superior durability, using a non-metallic liturgical brocade and gold bullion trim with metallic accents. The cover features a repeating cross-emblem pattern, while a wide gold trim decorates and reinforces the spine. The cover's interior and flaps are made from gold-toned premium lining material.
This fabric cover fits Volume I (Sundays and Holy Days) of the Canticum Clericorum Romanum exactly, measuring 11.25" x 8.75" (unfolded) with 2.50" interior flaps to securely fit the book. As a decorative veil, this cover will not only add splendor to the ritual of the liturgy offered in your church, but also help protect the substantial investment of your book from the frequent handling it receives.
Orders are being taken now for a limited number of these exclusive rose covers which will be available for delivery before Lent's Laetare Sunday (March 14). Note: to meet this deadline, your order must be placed by March 8, 2021.
