So today we give you the Biretta of a Minor Prelate or Monsignor. It is plain black wool, but with a purple tuft and purple lining. It is also worn traditionally by parish priests in Spain, who have obviously noticed that a bit of purple here and there adds a dash of pizzazz to the proceedings. Considering they give to the wider church an entirely new style of biretta altogether, Mother Prioress finds this a department of no surprise.
We entitle this post according to the rather pink appearance of the Roman Purple lining.
