The Mass has the designation, “White” because of that color’s connection to our baptismam promises and it has now become a tradition that all the participants at the liturgy wear white, to symbolize the bonds of community we all share through this sacrament of initiation. In fact, the Catholic Bishops in 1995 based their Sacramental Guidelines for Persons with Disabilities on this primary foundation:

By reason of their baptism, all Catholics are equal in dignity in the sight of God and have the same divine calling. (#1)
