"It does not always have to be the cappa"

You never thought you'd hear me say that, right?

Neither did I.

Well, I guess I am more flexible, open and liberal than I thought. Uhh, no, scratch that liberal thing.

Someone seems to have misinformed Cardinal O'Connell that Bishops wear ventral Crosses instead of pectoral ones.
But his picture makes me think of something else: Now that Pope Benedict has reintroduced the double sleeves for the papal simar (Yay!), couldn't that be considered a tacit approval for Bishops to do the same? I remember Cardinal Kuharic of Agram/Zagreb alway wore them.
