The return of the la cappa magna...

Well, for starters it sure is great to at least see one (albeit in a museum in Lourdes)! If you're wealthy, visit Signor Gammarelli in Rome and order one to be made for your bishop and once you (a layman!) give it to him, he might even then decide to wear it now and then?

The St. Helen's Colegiate Church of Birkirkara Malta was lifted to the rank of a Collegiate by Urban VIII. This Collegiate Church enjoys very rare and extraordinary rights and privileges, one of which is the Cappa Magna. Our Capitular Canons still vest the Cappa Magna daily for the daily prayers. for further details contact me on ex_urbe@msn.com
