Pope News

Apparently, we have a Pope now.

Glad I came home for lunch so I can watch the coverage over the next hour or so.

Do you happen to know why the vestments of the cardinals are different shades of red and why there are several differnt versions of the white parts? There seem to be two different reds, one being more orangey. And some of the white robs look to be various kinds of lace, almost, while others are just scalloped.

No, I have absolutely no idea. But it is fascinating.

Some cardinals have personal tailors in their home country, accounting for differences in vesture, while many cardinals do their shopping for ecclesiastical garments somewhere like Gammarelli's, prestigious producer of papal garments to the last 6 popes.

I'm a little disturbed that they elected the man who said that all other religions, including other Christian religions, weren't true religions...only the Catholic church is a "real" religion...
