Actually a very pretty piece of fabric. I guess what bothers me so much (other than, of course, the fact that NO VESTMENT SHOULD EVER BE MADE OF SUCH A PRINT!!!) is the fact that it points to no particular liturgical season. It only points to itself and to the pleasant-looking man foolish enough to wear it.
And that, of course, is the entire trouble.

Agreed with Pastor Schuster, save that I would add that, other than his point, someone did a very nice job with the chasuble's proportions, hang, etc. It looks like high quality work... which makes the choice of print even more distressing.

The Gaia Chasuble

Pastor of My Little Pony Land?

Paul Woodrum said...

Not Jack Squat but, I think, +Jack Cronenberger, sometime Episcopal Bishop of Newark, graciously modeling a chasuble made for him as a gift.

Or, perhaps he's vested to celebrate the Missa Aquarius.

Did anyone else notice the concealed buzzer in his right hand. Shaking hands with this priest must carry quite a shock!

Love the color, hate the use.

OK, so we've seen three in a row from St Gregory of Nyssa in San Francisco. Now, everybody knows that these particular Episcopalians are an easy mark. Yes, yes, they're hiddeous liturgy rags and all that, but geesh! Could we possibly be a bit more creative, rather than taking potshots at the world's biggest group of liturgical sitting ducks?

Alright, so they're the second biggest group. But they were the first, prior to this week's release of the disastrous translations from Rome....

I don't know what all the fuss is about. The vestments shown on this blog go with the 1979 BCP like butter with toast! You have the most banal of liturgies, you get the most banal of vestments - it's physics!

Back of course when we had the 1928 BCP and a beautiful liturgy, we had beautiful vestments...and a million or so more members to boot!

The Underground Pewster said...

Kelso has a point. The vestments could be cut up and used as BCP 79 bookcovers.

I don't think it's a print, I think it was handpainted on silk.

You know, it probably was made by a group of kids in a Sunday School or VBS or something.
