The Austrian Vestment Debacle

You know about the horrid vestments the Holy Father wore at Mariazell in Austria.

I have a bit of news.

Apparently, the Austrians wanted the Holy Father to wear Baroque vestments.

They were overidden by His Excellency the current Master of Pontifical Ceremonies, Most Rev. Piero Marini.

UPDATE: Someone sent me the following, which I duly pass along.

Because you are clearly someone interested in factualaccuracy, I am presuming to send you this email.  Please note that accordingto a story published on September 7 in Der Standard/Panorama, the Mariazellvestments were commissioned by the Austrian bishops.  Subject to theapproval of the Vatican to be sure, but the initial choice does not seem tohave been made by Archbishop Marini.
