Papal Winter Wear

JMJ+D

The Holy Father wore a thick white sweater underneath his cassock during his recent Wednesday audience.




One papal finery is the Mozetta which is the red velvet half-cape with fur trim worn on special occasions.




Last year, to protect himself from the winter cold, the Holy Father did a triple whammie by wearing the camauro, the white overcoat and the red cape.

Hear, hear for the Petrine office and tradition.

I love when Pope Benedict takes an occasion to dress up in some papal finery.

Viva il Papa!

He really needs to wear the mozetta and the camauro at the same time.

I love those pictures, i'm glad he is keeping warm. I always like the camauro pics too.
