Casula Romana

I'm watching the Holy Father process into St. Peter's for the Good Friday liturgy, and he's wearing a red chasuble cut in the Roman style (rather than the gothic style, which most people are used to seeing).

You just know this is bringing a sourpuss to the faces of a bunch of people, and, even if he gave out the cure for cancer, THIS will be the story today in the blogosphere and around the world.

In other words, hope you've got plenty of Lysol and paper towels for what's about to hit the fan.

UPDATE - for great pictures of the Liturgy, check out the pictures posted on the New Liturgical Movement blogsite.

Oh well. I'm (just as I did last year) will be wearing a Roman Chasuble for Good Friday. Its a beautiful chasuble. Since much of Good Friday is done ad orientum it makes sense to use a Roman chasuble.
