Vestments are to be worn, according to the rules of the Church, by the clergy in performing the ceremonies of the Church. The use of today's vestments stems from our roots, the Jewish Faith, and the priestly garments they used. Here are just a few examples from the Bible. In Exodus 28: 2-5 it says: "For the glorious adornment of your brother Aaron you shall have sacred vestments made. Therefore, to the various expert workmen whom I have endowed with skill, you shall give instructions to make such vestments for Aaron as will set him apart for his sacred service as my priest. These are the vestments they shall make: a breast piece, an ephod, a robe, a brocaded tunic, a miter and a sash. In making these sacred vestments which your brother Aaron and his sons are to wear in serving as my priests, they shall use gold, violet, purple and scarlet yarn and fine linen. In Exodus 35: 19 it says: "the service cloths for use in the sanctuary; the sacred vestments for Aaron, the priest, and the vestments worn by his sons in their ministry." We Catholics find the roots of our priesthood in the tradition of Melchizedek. (CCC 1544) In Genesis 14:18, Melchizedek offers a sacrifice of bread and wine. Christ therefore fulfilled the prophecy of Ps 110:4, that he would be a priest "after the order of Melchizedek," at the Last Supper, when he broke and shared bread with his disciples. Catholics take seriously Christ's command that the Apostles should "do this in memory of Me." The Catholic Church continues to offer sacrifices of bread and wine at Mass, as part of the Sacrament of the Eucharist and in the order of the Jewish Priests, so they wear vestments.
