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. Wearing of the stole by clergy was adopted by the Church of Rome about the seventh century and developed into a mark of dignity. The look of the stole evolved over time, gradually becoming narrower and more ornamented with symbols.
Lent is the season of preparation for celebrating Easter. Historically, Lent began as a period of fasting and preparation for baptism by converts and then became a time for penance by all Christians. Somber colors such as purple or ash gray are used for paraments, stoles, and banners.
Easter is the most joyous and celebrative season of the Christian year. It focuses on Jesus' resurrection and ascension and the gift of the Holy Spirit on the first Easter. The seasonal colors are white and gold.
