The Stole (See Supplement A.) This is to be embroidered in coloured silk, e.g., gold, on plain or brocaded silk. The Cross is ingeniously introduced as one of the characters in the sacred monogram. The whole design may be executed on white, red, green, or violet, the colours of the embroidery being selected to harmonize properly with the ground of the stole. The monogram and the Alpha and Omega should be done in gold. The field of the Aureole, on which the monogram is placed, may be in a different colour to that of the stole, and the rays surrounding it should be of gold. The border below the monogram may be executed in rich colours, with scrolls of gold.
