Fülöp (Philip) of Hajdúdorog wears the typical liturgical undervestment on the picture: the white cloth is the undermost vestment and it is called sticharion; the epitrachil is kind of a stole which is worn around the neck and hanging down equally in the front; the zone which is the belt; and the epimanikia which is the cuffs. Fülöp kisses the so-called sakkos, the usual vestment of Greek Catholic bishops that will go above the before mentioned vestments. Szilárd Keresztes, the former bishop of Hajdúdorog is holding the sakkos.
