Our friend John Sonnen at Orbis Catholicus has posted a nice photo of one of the purple dalmatics made for the pontificate of Benedict XVI.  These are the purple vestments used at Vespers at the beginning of Advent.

Here is a detail.

    Can’t say it, can’t spell it, but it still makes my knees shake it’s so beautful.

    That looks like the corner of the Holy Father’s cope held by the deacon in procession rather than the dalmatic itself.

    I would like to see a detail of the Holy Father’s new ferula – it is supposed to have his coat of arms on it.

    Yes, that looks more like the cope the Holy Father was wearing.

    The coat of arms medallion looks really cool!

    And the service was beautiful too-I saw it streamed on EWTN!
