Always nice to see the national colleges looking sharp with team spirit at every papal event in Rome. That is, everybody except the Americans - the NAC brass says to leave it on the football field.
Sadly, the NAC leadership - the seminarians complain - is still stuck in the "ogni cosa diventa politica" footprint and so American seminarians in Rome are still not allowed to be caught in public wearing the college habit (or they will be threatened during evaluations with a "formation issue.") Sad, but hilarious, too. At least the seminarians who have to live under this wierdness can still laugh at the incongruity of such a seventies policy (coming from the brass who are the ruling class elite).
