Pontifical gloves

Rťf-595

The Episcopal gloves or Pontifical gloves (chirothecú, called also at an earlier date manicú, wanti) are a Roman Catholic pontifical vestment worn a by bishop when celebrating Solemn Pontifical Mass.The Episcopal gloves are worn from the beginning of the Mass until the offertory, when they are removed. The gloves can be elaborately embroidered, and they generally match the liturgical color of the Mass, except that they are not worn for Good Friday or Requiem Masses.While the episcopal gloves are normally reserved for bishops,other prelates that are entitled to use pontificals,including abbots,may use them as well without a special papal privilege.
While the use of the Episcopal gloves is still permitted, they are very rarely seen except in celebrations of the 1962 form of the Roman Rite or yet earlier forms.
The gloves are considered symbolic of purity, the performance of good works and carefulness in procedure.
