Gone on holidays...

I'll be back after the Octave of Easter
(Man, am I looking forward to saying the h........-word again!)

To keep you entertained, here's a little game: The first person that names the following cardinals from top to bottom will..., will..., well, will win.

I know it's too easy, but - hey - is it my fault you guys know so much?

See y'all later!

The woolen and silk birettas are seasonal, however a couple are improperly dressed as the ermine is paired with the watered silk biretta or vice versa, obviously a no-no!Great little contest!

Of course they're seasonal. It is unlikely that any cardinal in Rome (I can gestimate that ALL these photos have been taken in Rome) was inappropriately dressed. It is likely that the protocols for certain ceremonies, even in ecclesiastical winter, required the woolen biretta. perhaps the reception of the gallero. After all, the watered-silk biretta is an innovation. The cappa is always di setta ondulata.

I mean in winter, with the silk biretta.

I know that. My point is that Cardinal #4 (Pla y Daniel?) is wearing ermine (winter) with a watered silk biretta (summer) and the great Tardini is doing the same in his photo. What you say about certain Roman ceremonies may be true...but the fact is that, as is, those two have an improper combination. We're just being lighthearted here.
