Late-Roman Empire attire came to the streets of Piqua today.
Their pastor strode the streets of downtown, attired as a cleric of Rome, circa 5-6th century. Cassock, alb, cincture, stolam et casulam; purple for Lent, of course.
Now, while I probably am crazy, this is not further evidence--it was one of those things.
We had a rite at the 10:30 am Mass, at St. Boniface, for those entering the Church at Easter, and Mass ran a little long. I had to be at noon Mass at St. Mary; I departed St. B at around 11:53 am.
So, I left my Mass attire on. Which meant, after Mass at St. Mary, I had to return it all to St. Boniface.
And, I had to make a stop downtown along the way.
Now what's all that gas about our clergy not being traditional enough? Top that!
