This set might best be named "To Jesus Through Mary" because of the fleur d' lys crosses that embrace the symbolism contained within them -- Our Lord's Passion. Even the gold metal brocade chosen for this Solemn High Mass set is covered with roses for Our Lady. The crosses of this design were quite challenging not only because they were ornate, but because of adding a secondary silk blend damask within them.

One of our top 10 most beloved bits of embroidery is on this set. It's the tiny and very delicately worked instruments of the passion on the chasuble's front. This priest put such an abundance of symbolism in the embroideries, even to include the Sacred and Immaculate hearts on the cope hood.
