Francis Equates Biretta with Barbaric Feathers

Talking to his Amazon Synod (October 7), Francis called it "offensive" to oppose civilisation to barbarism.

He expressed his annoyance regarding a joking comment about a man who last Sunday brought Eucharistic offerings with feathers on his head,

“What's the difference of having feathers as your headdress or a biretta which is used by the officials in our [Vatican] dicasteries?" he asked.

[The answer: The Biretta is removed for the liturgy, and Francis despises it.

Further, for American natives feathers symbolise a Pagan connection to the sky. North American Indians are allowed to wear feathers as reward for bravery in battle.]

There was absolutely no question about such matters from the First Century until the Twentieth.
So glad that the pope now approves of birettas. My son just bought one for the TLM.
What a wonnderful blessing! How long has your son been a priest now?
Talks out of both sides of his mouth.
May God rebuke him we humbly pray.
St Michael the Archangel defend us in battle

Evidently it does not apply to those that identify as " indigenous " . Women can be barefoot, wearing tight bleached jeans, a sports jersey style red t- shirt , a feathered headdress , face paint and present offerings to the Pontiff.

Evidently it does not apply to those that identify as " indigenous " . Women can be barefoot, wearing tight bleached jeans, a sports jersey style red t- shirt , a feathered headdress , face paint and present offerings to the Pontiff. None of that stuffy old traditional code of decentsy and reverence, women wearing all black , arms covered, skirts beneath the knee and black headcoverings in the presence of the Pope. Our even the lax tourist rules of covered knees and chest for men and women, lest the porters give you a light blue oblong cloth to cover properly for entrance and participation in services. Everybody gets to go " native". Our Lady of Victory, St. Joseph, Archangel Michael and all he Holy, Saints, Angels and the Heavenly court, pray for us!
