The cardinal’s cappa magna is one of the most spectacular pieces of ecclesiastical equipment.
Recently the Institute of Christ the King had some ordinations and His Eminence Raymond Card. Burke did the ordaining. Since this was with the pre-Conciliar Pontificale Romanum, His Eminence used the cappa.
Here are a few photos I pull from a collection of remarkable shots of the ordination just so you can see what a cardinal’s cappa involves… and I really mean involves, in the sense of wraps up.
The cappa has the bonus utility of really annoying liberals.
