And quite the head gear! veritas February 7, 2009 at 1:11 amLog in to Reply And to think, most people when they hear the word biretta think of a secret agent’s gun (beretta).It’s great to see priests wearing it and must be handy for the follically challenged.

I claim the role not of referee, but the person who gets to DING DING the bell at the end of each round. the Egyptian February 7, 2009 at 8:35 amLog in to Reply I love the both of you, so have at it, I still remember the CPPS Priests in our area with a cassock and the HUGE Crucifix that they wore in loops on it, and the gold chain looped just so. Now proper protestant suits and a lapel pin cross, just not the same. I forget who said it, “a cassock or habit not only says who you are but reminds the wearer who they are and that everyone else knows who they are, it enforces good and proper behavior”God Bless you and Fr Z and please keep up the good work, you 2 make my day trailbee February 7, 2009 at 11:00 amLog in to Reply Oooh, this is so wonderful.
