Humeral veils are used by priests and deacons to hold the Eucharistic host and other elements when celebrating the sacraments or during processions. Touching the monstrance with these veils, instead of bare hands, symbolizes deep respect for the body of Christ. Generally ivory in color, humeral veils are decorated with embroidery that echoes Jesus’ sacrifice, such as the Host surrounded by the rays of the sun, the IHS monogram, the cross and the Lamb of God. Vebi Confezioni offers a full range of humeral veils in different colors: not just ivory, but also red, green and violet, according to the liturgical calendar. For our Première Line garments, the motifs are embroidered by hand and can be customized.
