Red symbolizes the shedding of blood, thus red vestments are used on Palm Sunday, Good Friday, any other commemoration of the Lord’s passion, the votive Mass of the Precious Blood, the days marking the martyrdom of the apostles, and the feasts of other martyrs who offered their lives for the faith.
