A slow but far-reaching reform began in the liturgy of the Catholic Church from the second half of the 19th century. One of the principal aims was to involve the faithful in the life and liturgy of the Church. Innovations were initiated for example in the order of the mass, its language, the provision of the sacraments, the formation of the liturgical space and the textiles used in the liturgies. The Second Vatical Council accepted the reforms and as a result they spread rapidly throughout the world from the end of the 1960s. After a brief introduction on the historical background the study attempts to answer the question of why a relatively new form of folk embroidery, Kalocsa embroidery, was the first to appear on the renewed liturgical textiles of the Catholic Church. The author also presents a few of the first textiles decorated with Kalocsa embroidery.
