Future pope.


  1. This is a clerical item the use of which needs to be restored...subito!

  2. while the mozetta is now seen as the vestment proper to all bishops and cardinals as a vestment of "episcopal dignity" and not of jurisdiction as it once was...the mantelletta is unlikely to come back for bishops. But, I would like to see the rochet and mantelletta restored to all monsignors who are protonotary apostolics and all prelates of honour.
    The Chaplains of His Holiness will have to wait for a bump in rank to be given this vesture-- as was the case before the Pauline Vesture Nightmare of 1968 and 1969.

  3. Mind you an important symbol of jurisdiction.
