funny that, while the mc is wearing choir dress (correct), the cardinal is not. Its not that he is "dressed like a monsignor" but that that purple (or roman paonazza as it has become) is the colour of the livery of cardinals servants (mc, train bearer etc.) Even the choristers and altarboys in St. Peter's wear that colour.
Just curious. On the vesting altar one can clearly see a pontifical dalmatic yet HE does not seem to be wearing it after vesting.
castor aeternus" - thanks! you are a true legend of the old school!"true dat" as my roommate would say. yes, strangely the prelate didn't put on the dalmatic and tunicle that was there for him (althogh he did last year)...
