Oh dear. I think that hat has gone to TT's head.

Can I be Papal Banker, Your Holiness? My Protestant Work Ethic has to go somewhere you know. [Big Grin]

BTW my beard is coming along nicely. I ordered the hosiery online today.

WE endorse your plan for a new Basilica in Constantinople and trust you will exert every effort to raise the necessary funds.


Mmmm - have to be Latin, I suppose. Had you forgotten that ... erm ... there does happen already to be a Greek one ...? Whereas there's been a 60 year vacancy for a Latiin one ....

But, hang on ... Latin Patriarch? Like, I'd have to acknowledge ... papal monarchy ?! I suspect a Jesuitical plot to manipulate my conscience by offers of preferment ...! [Two face] And I'd have to flog the indulgences!!!

Fancy the Vatican keeping appointing (mostly) Eye-talian Latin Patriarchs for all those centuries .... I see it was 1965 before they finally gave up on it ..

I see your Holiness didn't take up the suggestion of a Trappist house on Athos. Well, fair enough, on reflection it wouldn't be edifying to see Trappists being hurled into the Aegean by enraged Old Kalendarists ....

I look forward to the Church of Rome becoming ever so much more orthodox and tasteful under the divinely dictated papacy of Pope Hadrian "Trip" VII.

I met a fellow once who was by then a Catholic layman but had once rejoiced in the title of Archdeacon of Demerara, which I rather liked.

Then there was the Churchwarden of Moscow and all the Russias.

The first Catholic Bishop of Cape Town was appointed as Bishop of Cape Town "and surrounding islands". Those surrounding islands were Madagascar, Australia and New Zealand!

I rather liked the phrase "Vicar of Baghdad" in the press for Canon Andrew White, though of course it isn't his official title, and I don't think he calls himself that! It sort of makes a fun contrast with titles like "the Vicar of Little Humpingham with Steeple Parva and Kipping-in-the-Wold".

Do you still have all those splendid sinecure offices in partibus infidelibus, TT - if so, surely you could give him one of those? Like Metropolitan of Ctesiphon and the Furthest East, or suchlike

Well, the English Benedictine Congregation has all the old titles which it doles out to elderly retired monks, like Abbot of Westminster and Prior of Chester and the like.

Maybe WE should create Anglican_Brat Dean of St Paul's (Fanum) until such time as it is "restored to the old religion" (as the notice board at St Etheldreda's Ely Place so discreetly puts it).

WE do not believe Sober-Preacher's Kid showed sufficient enthusiasm at OUR election, so WE are witholding any favours from him [Snigger]

A question for your Mass setting: Should we be thinking in terms of standard Church Latin (i.e., funky Italian) pronunciation, or will Your Holiness prefer a more English Latin pronunciation?

From the Desk of Cardinal Max., Legate of the Jesuits to the people of Christ's Church

My dear Sisters and Brothers in the Risen Lord:

Today, myself and a group of about 30 Religious, Priests and Bishops travelled to the Lake District for a day of Prayer, Meditation and Thanksgiving to God for the gift of Teva Sandals and have come to the decision that Teva Sandals are now to be the official Sandals of the Franciscans, the Jesuits and all Sandal wearing Catholics to the Glory of God's holy name!

I shall be presiding over a special mass at the newly built "Christ our Lord in Sandals" Abbey in Milton Keynes on 8th November 2008 to bless 400 Pairs of Teva Sandals to be distributed immediately amongst all ranks of the Catholic Church in England and Wales. Rowan Williams will preach and the Dalai Lama will lead a period of silence in the mass.


Yours in the Risen Christ

From the Desk of Archbishop Silas C., Papal Chamberlain and Expicator of Vestments to the Supreme Pontiff;To all children of Holy Mother Church
Bretheren in in Christ:
After several meetings with Mons.Marini,Master of Cermonies to the S.P., and Mons. Camille Perl, secretary of the CD, the following rules are to be observed when vesting:
-The custom is reprobated whereby "Cassock-albs" exist anywhere*.This same is extended to albs and cottas containing less than four inches of lace.

-The dubium is revoked whereby gothic vestments are allowed to look like potato sacks*. Examples of proper Gothic vestments made be found in any vestments designed by A.W.N.Pugin or Micheal Sternbeck. Lace may not be worn with Gothic vestments.

-In response to the apparitions of Our Lady of the Sacristy to Sr. Maria Jacoba Caterina Barbara of St.Domitilla and the Holy Martyrs of Lyon, (Known as Sr.May.)Maniples are to be worn at all masses except during passiontide.

-It is more preferable that Gothic chasubles not be worn in Italianate churches.The Pianetta may be worn anywhere.

-Mitres may be no shorter than 11 inches tall. Gothic mitres, however, may be shorter, provided that they look like this.

I hope that these instructions will be followed with joyous obedience, or at least some kind of obedience.I thank those who attended the pontifical high mass that I celebrated last week at St.James, Spanish Place for the founding of the Society of Blessed Paul VI (SBPVI), A society of apostolic life dedicated to the renewal of Vatican II.I Would also like to thank those attended the ordination of 57 men to the priesthood of said society at the basilica of Our Lady of Lourdes in Philadelphia.

From the desk of the Jesuit and Ignatian Outreach Committee for the Jesuit Provinces

Dear fellow Brothers and Sisters,

In this deep financial crisis that we seem to be facing, we feel that it is our role to reach out to those who feel that they are in a situation of desperation and despair. We feel that the best thing we can do is invite them to mass, which is why next Sunday in all Jesuit outposts, we shall be celebrating " Folk Mass Sunday"


Suggested hymns for this wonderful outreach would be:

Bind us Together Lord

Sing it in the Valleys, Shout it from the mountain tops!

Jesus put this song into my heart

The Magic Penny Song

I am the bread of life


We hope you have a fantastic outreach mass!

Sister Hilary C.J.

Beaten to death with tambourines and stacks of praise music, wasn't it?

I thought St. Max. fell through the ice pack while going to his next praise gig.

:shrug: I guess Jesuits don't float.

BTW the collective patrons of Canada are the Canadian Martyrs, Jesuits, all of them.

Ste. Marie among the Hurons is three hours from my house.

Who indicated to the person playing Father Mackay in the new version of Brideshead Revisited that in his administration of the last rites to Lord Marchmain , he should use clasical Latin pronunciation rather than the virtually universal Italianate pronunciation of Latin in the anglophone world for church use?

I have only heard in all my life one priest(an English Jesuit) who used this pronunciation.

e.g. Petah nohstah qui es in coylis (Our father who art in heaven).

MartinL WE name you Master of Papal Ceremonies.

Mons. Marini has been sent to govern his imaginary see. Please forward his mail there, keeping in mind that all opinions he gives henceforth concerning papal ceremonies are merely that--opinions.

Concerning your vestment requests, I see no problem, provided the Jesuits [especially those who think they can get away with wearing sandles in Nunavut] are allowed their provision for cassock-alb.

Furthermore, I would respectfully request that the papal chamberlain search for blue, black, and Passiontide red vestments that fall under the "precious" classification and can thus be used anyway, even if their liturgical color is no longer official.

Much can be lauded about the size of mitres, although caution should be exercised and Gothic mitres should only be donned on infrequent occasions. It is your duty to ensure that only the highest quality of mitre is used. As a general rule: "If chasuble and mitre match, throw it down the hatch." The utmost attention should be paid when choosing from the three classes of mitre.

Papal Chamberlain:
Preparations for the Midnight Mass of the Nativity have begun. It is advised that you instruct your staff to begin cleaning the good cappa magna now.

The Santo Padre has never worn a Cappa Magna and WE are not given to innovations!

However, the Mantum is still an option.

You see what happens when the pope disperses his authority: the children start fighting among themselves!

A fine choice. Profoundly apostolic yet humble in its simplicity. The taste of the pontiff is to be commended and set forth as an example for others to follow.

Foaming Draught:
Worrying about vestments keeps upper management from sticking their noses where they don't belong.

Chasubles are functional: they hide clerical girth to a certain degree, they cover a wide variety of sweat stains, and they keep clergy from looking like used car salespeople.

Mitres are likewise functional: they keep the bishop's head from getting too big and they force the bishop to bow when passing below the rood.

Copes are functional as well: they are excellent for tossing over a cleric's shoulders when said cleric is wearing a tacky stole.

Sanctuary slippers: keep the presider from standing too long, and thus make the liturgy a manageable length.

Birettas: they just look cool.

The Mantum looks nice and warm -- perfect for drafty yet incredibly historic churches.

Biretti do look cool, although the Canterbury cap is considerably more practical. I understand why Il Papa might want to eschew it, however.

(Can sanctuary slippers ever have bunnies embroidered on them? That would introduce an understated element of whimsy to the proceedings.)

Kissing the pontifical scarlet slippers of His Holiness Pope Triple Tiara, may I respectfully and humbly ask to be appointed to an office that he deems will put my limited skill and knowledge to better use?

I read that il Papa has dispensed with the services of a Papal spellchecker,however he will not wish the use of 'biretti' to pass as a supposed plural of 'biretta'

Yes, there are some words in the usual language of the Papal court (Italian) which end in'a' and are masculine,virtually all of these words being of Greek provenance ,such as 'il Papa' and its plural 'i Papi'

'biretta' is however the English form of a word which has its closest equivalent in Italian as 'la berretta da prete'

Berretta has the plural of 'berrette' in Italian,but I do not know what is the plural of 'biretta' in english.

I should be honoured to serve your TripleTiaratude as prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.

I speculated about the plural of biretta on another thread not long ago, when I was reliably informed that this plural in English is birettas.
