Vesting Prayers for a Bishop?
#2
He arrives in the secretarium wearing his choir dress and Roman buckled shoes.

He sits and reads the Psalms from the Preparation for Mass. Meanwhile, an MC removes the buckled shoes, and put the buskins and sandals on the bishop.

The bishop stands to read the versicles and collects, and then reads all the vesting prayers straight through. There are special ones for a bishop, and you can find them in an old Missal.

Afterwards, he removes his cross and cape, his train is let down, he sits, receives his biretta, removes his ring, his hands are washed, he removes his biretta, and stands, and is then handed the vestments in order by the deacon and subdeacon.

Depending on where he actually vests (the secretarium or the sanctuary) some of the details may vary.

Liturgically speaking, bishops are really high maintenance…
