Vaticanista Fashionista

April 24, 2007

Some very perceptive blogging vaticanistas have keenly observed a “trend” in Roman liturgical garb of recent days.

These two vestments saw the light-of-day once again at the open-air Mass in Saint Peter’s Square on Divine Mercy Sunday, April 15. His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI dons the Precious Miter while his two secretaries wear the rochet.

Many thanks to John-Paul Sonnen at Orbis Catholicvs, the Rev. Fr. Tim Finigan at The Hermeneutic of Continuity , and The Team at Shouts in the Piazza for the insights, and the Rev. Fr. John Zuhlsdorf at What Does the Prayer Really Say? for the monsignori photo. (Credit to Leoste Italia for the Pope’s photo.)

The psychedelic polyester “spirit of v2” is dying a slow-painful death.
