Someone brought him up...


Pius V: Everyone's favourite papal trendsetter, in matters liturgical and sartorial. If ever you feel down, just remember that he also has to put up with happy clappy music and irreverent tourists.

No, that's a mask. You can just make out the velvet pontifical slippers, the white chirothecae, and a huge gem on his ring.

Yay!!! Never hurts to have the OPs around...

It does say something, though, that at the back of my mind the most important thing dear old St. Pius achieved was getting the popes to wear white... ;-)
