Will Pope Benedict dress traditionally on his visit to the USA?


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.

Quintero,
This is an excellent blog! And, I found it while Googling the term "St. Vibiana". I will definitely read what you have to say on it regularly. :)

I'd also like to extend my congratulations to you and your family, Chad. I was confirmed a few Sundays ago during my parish's Easter mass. As for a solid parish in your area, have you tried St. Bruno's in your hometown? It's off of Citrustree Road, but I only know that since I used to participate in the Friday morning Toastmasters meetings that were held at their activity center. Hope that helped!

Hey Chad, if you're willing to drive, St. Thérèse in Alhambra is a good place to be. The Church is ran by the discalced Carmelites. If you need directions, my e-mail is on my profile.

Congratulations to chad g. and your family! I suggest you try St. Peter Chanel Catholic Church in Hawaiian Gardens. Check their website in the archdiocese page to find out more details. The parish even has five daily masses (4 in English and 1 in Spanish)!

Dear Free Agent C,

And congratulations on receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation a few Sundays ago! That's great news.
