The word stole comes from the Latin stola
which itself is a derivative of a Greek word which means “garment.” The stole was originally a kind of scarf that covered the shoulders and front of the body. The look of the stole evolved over time. They gradually became narrower and more ornamented with symbols.
The Cross and Crown are often interpreted as symbolizing the reward in heaven (the crown) coming after the trials in this life (the cross). (James 1:12)
Purple is the liturgical color for the seasons of Advent and Lent.
