SPEAKING OF PRE-VATICAN II INCULTURATION, I REALLY LOVE THESE BIRETTAS!
As some of you may know, I have an antipathy for birettas. I don't know why, maybe because I was forced to wear a military hat and uniform in the first grade at Saint Anthony School in the West End of Atlanta in the l959-60 school year. You know how children can be scared for life by these sorts of experiences.
But with that said, I really like these pre-Vatican II inculturated birettas.
