Some of you are interested in clerical headwear.
Here are some birettas spotted during the Holy Father’s Mass today, celebrated in St. Peter’s Square, for the 2nd Sunday of Easter and his 80th birthday.
First, a cardinal and an Eastern prelate:
Next, a bishop’s biretta:
If I am not mistaken, I think that is my bishop, on the left…. hmmmm….
Next , biretta’s worn by judges of the Rota and Segnatura, in other words, the sort that can be worn by protonotaries and by canons of the major basilicas.
I am pleased to see these clerics all observing the proper biretiquette.
