I’m pretty sure it is supposed to be the other way around. When you become Pope, you give up the Prada and wear the loafers made in Mexico.
Best of all, I find the making of three different size vestments – small, medium and large – no only excessive, but ridiculous. They are robes. Big robes. Make one and alter. Who’s paying for this? Not the starving Catholics on the streets of the U.S. or in Latin America or Europe. Forget the fact that the Church doesn’t let women in, they are standing before the world and poking their fingers in the eyes of their faithful. Where is the common sense? Where is the compassion? Where is the vow of poverty?
“Silence is Consent.” – Pope Boniface VII (1235-1303)
