Captions, anyone?

Father is trying hard but he hasn't quite got the "Reform of the Reform" yet.

His Excellency couldn't decide what to wear, so he used everything in his closet!

Is it something to do with the light, or is his cappa crimson? If it is, does anyone know why?

The cappa is a taborro (spelling, guys?), a sort of double-winter cloak. It is one of these pieces of prelatical non-liturgical dress that supposedly were supressed but still keep popping up every now and then, much to the dismay of the "Keep it simple/Don't offend the poor/Christ didn't have any of that stuff either/You dress like a woman"-crowd.

As for the color, it doesn't look that freakish to me. Seems to be a middle-of-the-road episcopal purple.

tabarro, or at least it attempts to mimic a tabarro for a midgit.

The colour is normal; it's roman paonazza (magenta), the colour of papal livery adopted by prelates in the 19th c. to replace the old prelatial purple which was sometimes like blue)
