The custom of a special mass for the judicial community arose in France, England and Italy in the early 13th century to mark the opening of the courts of law and to ask guidance for all who seek justice.  It became known as Red Mass from the color of the priests' vestments and judges' robes.

This tradition continues today in San Antonio as a time for members of the legal community of all faiths to come together for the cause of justice.
