The Church: teach our boys chivalry...


"Some say that the age of chivalry is past, that the spirit of romance is dead. The age of chivalry is never past, so long as there is a wrong left unredressed on earth."
-Charles Kingsley

The gold cord with pectoral implies it's a canon of the Milan See.

For a while, it looked as though the manteletta (which originates in the thirteenth or fourteenth century, I think,) was going the way of the biretta and the humeral veil.

It is good to see these, and other things, have survived.

Many thanks to JP for the photos.
