John Paul's Cappa
Now here's a little something for this wet and windy weekend to gladden your Catholic senses. Biretta tip to 'Leo' at Far Sight for discovering this rare picture of 'John Paul the Great' shortly after being made a Cardinal and wearing a cappa magna!
Wojtyla was never a creature of the sacristy and in later years he was quite content to leave all liturgical and sartorial matters in the hands of Marini. But judging from his expression, I think the good Cardinal is rather enjoying being wrapped up in watered silk!
