Surprise your local bishop!

This post will only be interesting for the next four days. Someone is selling two cappae magnae (one of which looks like purple silk, the other like purple wool) and one winter-upper part of a cappa made of white fur (don't know if it is actually ermine).

So, if you have some left-over cash right now...

Looks odd with cappa magna and all black cassock, doesn't it? Didn't they get a proper choir dress to go with that?
The blue gothic chasuble on eBay (& the golden alb) should come with a warning sign.

Yes, please can a proper Catholic buy them as the bidders seem to be purchasers of gay porn, judged by their previous ebay purchases.

@ Antonius
Depending on where he found the cappa it wouldn't be too odd if it came without cassock and rochett

@ Recusant
Haha! That's exaclty what I thought.

look like some kind of canons' cappas; the wrong colour, unless it is a question of the light.

I knew a priest, Michael K. who had some ermine capes. Is he the seller?

If don't know who the seller is. If you look at the pics on ebay you can see that the light is kind of strange. But you're right, they do look a little to violet for bishops cappae in some of the pics

Also, the staircases are VERy narrow, which makes me think they are either in the UK or Ireland.
