Roman tailored vestments...

Nice to hear the Epistle and the Gospel chanted as had always been the custom (good work, gentlemen!).

I have to admit I really prefer the antique "filagree" craftsmanship seen here, too (delicate and intricate ornamentation usually in gold or silver or other fine twisted wire)!

John, I was ordained a deacon in that basilica and with those very vestments!

Father Z:
You picked a good Roman location!

The Mass was really very nice: there were 4 vested deacons each in a dalmatic (2 deacons of honor).

May St. Nicholas pray for us and bless you always in your internet apostolate!
