The Pope's Footwear (Papal Shoes) and more

An interesting website about the Pope's footwear -- the who, what, when, where and why.

Thank you for this wonderful article on the shoes. It is so informative. Our pastor, a Monsignor, wears black shoes with silver buckles when he says the Traditional Mass. When our young curate says the Mass, Monsignor attends and wears the same shoes. His purple cassock has a little train he unbustles and over his surplus a white cape with the Jerusalem Cross on it that he wears for the Traditional Mass when he sits on the side of the altar at his chair and kneeler. It looks wonderful. Makes you proud to part of the Catholic Church with all its pomp. I always invite Protestant neighbors or friends so they can see it. It really is impressive. And the Mass is gorgeous—we have a great choir. They even do Mozart. So thanks again for the shoes. We need to keep these traditions alive for future generations.
