morning hat (capello romano–an addendum)

While not an Official Roman Catholic vestment–it is Never worn when celebrating Mass–we’re all familiar with the must-wear topper for all well-dressed priests particularly when traveling about rubbing elbows with the hoi-polloi…

It’s called the capello romano…

Cappello Romano

and it can be adorned by the high-echelon members of the Clergy, but we mostly see it in its simple black “padre” form…or as I like to call it:  The Father Guido…


I do hope they bring Father Guido Sarducci in for color commentary throughout the Papal festivities…

Let me quote him as I go…

(speaking of the Other commandments given to Moses):

Most of them were more like advice…The twelfth commandment, for example, was “Whistle while you work”…

I think we’re going to learn a lot from these ceremonies…  (by the way, if you missed my first “hat” post, scroll over to 3/13… )

And take Father’s advice….
