When Pope Benedict the roman-numeral-I-don’t-remember visited NYC back in 2013, I wrote a series of blog posts on the hats that the Catholic Patriarchy wear. (my daughter sang for for that Pope during his visit, admiring his perfect red shoes more than his particular philosophies)  The final blog episode featured just one hat, the capello romano.  To this day, that post receives a couple of visits a month from folks who have searched for that chapeau…or maybe they’re looking for Father Guido Sarducci.  At any rate, this post has the most stamina of anything I’ve ever written.

Warning!  This will make you want to look up Father Guido bits on YouTube…
