HEY KIDS!! WHAT TIME IS IT?!!

It's time for another exciting round of everybody's favorite game, "Bishop?  Or Star Trek Character?"

Hey guys! How's that headgear!
Otherwise, ouch!
I don't think they are from the same jurisdiction. But perhaps they are in communion with each other?
Perhaps you should start giving attributions for all these horrible pics? But of course that would be telling!

Ah, which liturgical season is flowered chintz? Sorry but no, that's too much. I can't hear his message over his vestments.

Is that a tassel at the top of - for want of a better word - the orphrey of the chasuble? Because it makes it look like it unzips down the front.

That's J. Neil Alexander, Ordinary of Atlanta on the right. The fellow on the left is holding a program with the Arms of Atlanta on it, but I don't know him.

Look what we bought at the Liberace Museum's going out of business sale.I wonder why these didn't sell before we got there. If we would have gotten there earlier, we could have bought some of the good stuff.

Two words: understated elegance.

The bishop on the left is the diocesan of Rio de Janeiro, with which Atlanta has a companionship.

I was at diocesan council when this happened. The chasuble and stoles (believe me, the stole the bishop of Rio is wearing is supposed to match the green chasuble) were made by people with disabilities of one diocesan project and the bishops were "coerced" into wearing them for night mass.

Have never seen that set being worn again.

the other bishop is the bishop of Rio de Janeiro, and was visiting Atlanta, as they are companion dioceses. Bp. Filadelfo was wearing what he was given to wear- as was Bp Neil. The chasuble was made by mentally disabled parishioners- so as hideous as it is, he had no choice but to wear it.

I'm mentally challenged myself; however, if I could sew better, I believe I could have at least made these more liturgically correct.

The Reverend Steven P. Sabin said...

Where did the idea originate that the laity at a particular liturgy should "dress" the celebrant? Worship is not a "project." I hope this lamentable attitude does not spread outside the Church. I should be greatly unhappy if the children of the pilot or a disabled passenger is invited to fly the next plane I am on.

Historic moment here: The word schmatta is now officially part of the vestment lexicon.

Hello BadVestmentBlog Administrator.
Here another horrible vestment for you: http://img.over-blog.com/600x400/2/83/85/17/cirques/monaco-2011/celebration--1024x684-.jpg

Henry - stunningly bad. Looks like the trim around my crib. Is that juggler actually balancing the cross on his chest?

@ Reverend I hope you're not prejudiced against people with mental disabilities- I get enough of that in the world, thank you.

Elizabeth said...

@Reverend Sabin: it would be worse for a disabled passenger to fly a plane than a non-disabled passenger?

I do hope you are not in charge of pastoral care at your parish.

So you think that's bad? Then have a look at

The Reverend Steven P. Sabin said...

No, Elizabeth, it is simply not advisable for non-pilots to fly planes, and non-tailors to make vestments.

My spouse, who uses a wheel chair to get around asks only respect and basic human dignity and generally abhors patronizing attempts at "inclusion."
