This Stole is made of Brocade /Damask Fabric with Cross designs and lined with satin fabric from inside. St. Claret is embroidered directly to the fabric of the stole on one side and CML on the other side. The stole measures 52 inches in length and has a stay string in the middle along with fringes at the bottom.
This stole was specially made for Claretian Missionaries.
Stole: is a liturgical vestment composed of a strip of material around four inches wide and usually seven and a half to nine feet long. It has either a uniform width throughout, or is somewhat narrower towards the middle, widening at the ends in the shape of a trapezium or spade. A small cross is generally sewed or embroidered on the stole at both ends and in the middle; the cross, however, is prescribed only for the middle, where the priest kisses the stole before putting it on. There are no express precepts concerning the material of the stole, but silk, or at least a half-silk fabric, is most appropriate. (source: www.newadvent.org)
