Catholic culture: the precious mitre...


Treasures of Western Christendom (and great to see the precious mitre!).

This photo was taken just this afternoon after the lovely 3.5 hour rite of ordination at the FSSP European seminary in Bavaria, Germany.

Nice to see this splendor. These historic vestments are from the treasury of Altötting, the famed Bavarian shrine and place of pilgrimage near Munich.

As I've said before, a Bishop with a mighty mitre is always a nice thing to see!

Wonderful but a new miter.

That style of miter was purposely made to then be the object of a hatred of liberation theologians and the. I don't care if you say Pius XII used. But that thing is excessive and in my opinion, done by the ones who plot against Her from inside.

And I am not talking about the richness mind you, I am talking about the style.
