Moths don’t like plastic

October 23, 2007

An interesting commentary “After Marini — No Deluge,” has come to Us via Fr. Z’s WDTPRS? blog from the on-line weekly Petrus about the change at the Office of Pontifical Liturgical Ceremonies. The closing paragraph sums it nicely:

The Augustinians, who have the care of the papal sacristy, will have a big task in the next few days: after twenty years during which any sort of traditional vestment was forbidden, many rooms will be unlocked, the doors of many vestment cases opened wide. And, since with Msgr. Piero Marini precious sacred vestments of the papal treasury were banished to give way to a panoply of questionable creations, one might suppose that in the coming weeks the former will be brought out into the light to make room for the latter. And there won’t even be any need for mothballs: moths don’t like plastic.

    We can send all the old stuff to the episcopalians, since they’re only playing dress up anyway.

    The Anglicans are in meltdown as it is. Pray for them. The Tiber should be seeing a few more swimmers.
