Today's Los Angeles Times has an essay (click on this post's title), "Papal dress code," by Michael McGough, its senior editorial writer.
The author wants us all to note whether the Pope continues his recent practice of donning traditional Roman-style vestments, including tall miters and short chasubles, or whether he will wear "Gothic"-style ones, including short miters and full chasubles, that the liberals have favored in the post-Vatican II years.
Go, Roman! Beat Gothic!
Let's all pray for the Pope, that his U.S. visit be happy and safe for him and will be very, very fruitful for our U.S. Church and for the right to life cause.
By the way, author McGough seems pretty well-informed, but he does write that he was an "alter" boy in the early 1960s.
