The Amazing Technicolor Nightmare

I love the Holy Father, and I like to follow the details of his trips and pilgrimages. But what is with these vestments? Were they a gift from a really big donor who has no taste? Maybe some sweet, well-meaning nuns buzzed them up in their sewing room, and the Pope didn’t have the heart to say no? Whatever the reason for their existence, they should be quietly packed away where they can’t scare the children.
