Ooo! Brigittine! I love their headgear. :)
Someone bring back God’s geese (the Daughters of Charity) with their starched cornette – someone other than Hollywood!-) After VII they hired Christian Dior to design them a new habit that didn’t last very long
That is not old school, John. None of the bridgetine orders (new = Piazza Farnese, old = Vadstena) has kept the old habit.Here is the old one (sported by Blessed Mother Hesselblad): http://www.vatican.va/news_services/liturgy/img/928a10%20.jpg
Anonymous (2) claims: None of the bridgetine orders...has kept the old habit.Not so. All of the contemplative houses have. The house on the Piazza Farnese is only the motherhouse of the so-called "Swedish branch", and it runs an active apostolate in Rome and throughout the world. The contemplative houses like Vadstena (Sweden), Syon (England), and houses in Germany and Mexico are all contemplative and continue to wear the traditional habit.
In Vadstena they definitely wear a modern habit.
