Q: I recently saw an Eastern Rite priest (with facultuies to celebrate the Roman Rite) preside at a liturgy in the Roman Rite, wearing the vestments of his own rite. Is this appropriate?


A: I know of no provision for this in the GIRM or in the Directory for the Application of Principles and Norms on Ecumenism. It seems to me that when a priest presides for the Roman Rite, the vestments listed in the GIRM should apply. If a blog follower knows something else, I hope they’ll inform us.
