Asperges Cope is a kind of mantle that, in the Tridentine rite was used by the priest for the rite of sprinkling holy water on the people, hence its name. Also known as Pluvial Cope, it should be used over the tunic and stole, but also over the cassock-surplice-stole. Its use is appropriate in the celebration of the sacraments of baptism and marriage outside Mass, in the solemn blessing of the Blessed Sacrament, in the processions of the patron saints (white, beige, red or green), on the solemn vespers, in the procession of Palms, in the Celebration of the Passion of Christ (red) and in funerals (purple or black) and in solemn divine offices and in the procession of Corpus Christi. Deacons may also wear asperges copes.
