Patriarchal Letter regarding the Liturgy in Election of a Patriarch of Saint Stephen

  The mass in election of a Patriarch is the Votive Mass of the Holy Spirit, with red vestments.

  Upon the election of the Patriarch, the general Votive Mass of Thanksgiving is used, with the collects for the Patriarch used in place of those given for the Mass of Thanksgiving. The solemn col-lect for the Patriarch, as given in the Liber Usualis for the Bishop with "Antistite" replaced with "Patriarcho," follows the Last Gospel. Red vestments are used for this liturgy.

  Given in the Court of Saint Mary of Walsingham this 15th day of March in the two thousand thirteenth year of the Incarnation.
