A Carriage, An Umbrella, and a Priest in a Maternity Dress

H/T to Mundabor. He looks absolutely ridiculous!


Recently, Father Gianfranco Scandella was made the parish-priest of Cassinone, near Bergamo.

He is the vice-rector of the theological formation at Bergamo Seminary, Italy, John XXIII’s home diocese. For the official welcome with a carriage in presence of the local mayor, he showed up with an umbrella and dressed in a surplice without cassock which made him look like a pregnant mother in a maternity dress.

However, since he belongs to the pastorally enlightened Vatican II clergy, he likely didn’t notice that he made a fool out of himself.

Comments are subject to deletion if they are not germane. I have no problem with a bit of colourful language, but blasphemy or depraved profanity will not be allowed. Attacks on the Catholic Faith will not be tolerated. Comments will be deleted that are republican (Yanks! Note the lower case 'r'!), attacks on the legitimacy of Pope Francis as the Vicar of Christ (I know he's a material heretic and a Protector of Perverts, and I definitely want him gone yesterday! However, he is Pope, and I pray for him every day.), the legitimacy of the House of Windsor or of the claims of the Elder Line of the House of France, or attacks on the legitimacy of any of the currently ruling Houses of Europe.
