The vestments that a priest wears during the Celebration of the Eucharist are an Alb, Cincture, Stole, and Chasuble. The vestments are traditionally laid out for the priest in… the Sacristy (a room off the Sanctuary) in such a way he may easily dress. A prayer card is usually placed on top, so that he may recite the Liturgical Vesting Prayers. I do not have a copy with me, however, I found these traditional Vesting Prayers online. As the priest dons each, he recites a prayer: Alb Wash me clean, Lord, and cleanse me from my sin; that I may rejoice and be glad unendingly with them that have washed their robes in the blood of the Lamb. (Psalm 50, 3 and Apocalypse 7, 14) Cincture Gird me, Lord, with the belt of faith, my loins with the virtue of chastity, and extinguish in them the humour of lust; that the strength of all chastity may ever abide in me. Stole Restore to me, Lord, I beseech Thee, the stole of immortality, which I lost in the transgression of the first father; and, though unworthy I presume to approach Thy sacred mystery with this garment, grant that I may merit to rejoice in it forever. Chasuble O Lord, who said: my yoke is sweet and my burden light: grant that I may be able so to bear it, so that I may be able to obtain Thy grace. (St. Matthew 11, 30) Please look at the video of the Vestments and Vesting below. Not only will you learn what they look like, you will see how they are put on! ( Full Answer )
