Legal Professionals Take Part in the Annual Red Mass
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -
A number of area lawyers, judges and elected officials gathered at the Corpus Christi Cathedral Thursday night to pray for justice, guidance and wisdom.
It's called a Red Mass because of the bright red robes worn by the clergy, similar to the scarlet robes legal professionals wore in England, where the tradition originated. The ceremony can be traced back to the year 1245.
