Papal Ermine

I would just like to say this: When the Pope wears the fur-lined shoulder cape, like Popes wore in the good old days, it makes me very happy.

Pope Benedict XIV, reigned 1740-1758.  Voltaire wrote little poems about him.

I get cold easily, too. If I were the Pope, I would be wearing that thing all the time.

I think we all want our Holy Father to be nice and warm.

The Pope was here in Washington in April during the Easter season. So he wore a white silk fur-lined shoulder cape, as well he should.

Ermine-lined papal shoulder capes are the kind of thing that make this world a wonderful place.
