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 descending dove is a symbol of the presence of God as the Holy Spirit and peace, new life, and purity.
Red is an alternative liturgical color for Holy Week and the color for Pentecost Sunday, as well as for ordinations and installations.
