    Just looking for opinion. I do not wear red during Lent-my mother said that we don’t. Our Parish Priest wants everyone to wear red for Palm Sunday.

      In my nearly seventy years have I ever heard of a priest asking for the laity to do such a thing. You did not mention if he gave a reason or not. But the laity is not required at any time to wear any specific color of clothing. The priest IS, however, to wear the liturgical colors for the celebration of the Mass. The color red is the color of blood and used on all feasts of the Lord’s Cross and Passion, on the feast of the Apostles and all martyrs. Red is also used on Pentecost and in Masses of the Holy Spirit, in memory of the tongues of fire of the First Pentecost. Your mother is correct that red is not worn as a liturgical color by the laity or any of the other liturgical colors. The laity is only required to dress appropriately for Mass and the color chosen is of no significance. I hope this answers your question.
