How to Dress When You Are Received in Audience with the Pope: Abito Scuro with Spanish Mantilla


  1. The Holy Father appears to have an annual encounter with Azione Cattolica di Roma in St Peter's Square for the Angelus at about this time. Regularly now a young lady and young man appear with the Holy Father at his window. I cannot see what the young man is wearing and I do not wish to carp but for the young lady, a hooded sweatshirt is not appropriate apparel when in the presence of the Sovereign Pontiff. Why are her parents not advising her? Don't they know what a privilege this is? Doesn't anyone know what is appropriate attire anymore?

  2. Sadly only the CD diplomatic corps does this today.
