Pagan Symbol On Francis‘ Liturgical Vestments

The Mass vestments for Pope Francis' upcoming Dublin World Meeting of Families (August 22-26) feature a triple spiral.

Father Damian McNeice, the master of ceremonies for the event confirmed on WorldMeeting2018.ie (August 15) that the symbolism draws from "Celtic imagery". Spirals can be found on many ancient stones and monuments of Ireland’s past.

McNeice claims that the pre-Christian symbol also represents the Holy Trinity.

For the mass-distribution of Communion during Francis' Mass, 4,000 ciboria and 200 chalices have been produced.

It's a test that could easily reform the Catholic Church without any investigations. Do you like these vestments? Yes? Get out.

They couldn't have come up with vestments that more perfectly capture the character of the event. Maximally fitting.

They are great for your next Halloween party, when you dress up as the “Spirit of Vatican II”

???? What are those awful things? Rainbow motifs that were thrown accidently in a hot wash?
Who designed them- Liberace?
Is this a joke?

The command of Christ is impossible, but it is not insane; it is rather sanity preached to a planet of lunatics.

You know... The New Evangelization. Francis is reaching out to his Chinese brothers. "You say yin, I say yong..."

Let’s not forget that JPII wore vestments that were way more weird than these.... On many more occasions.

The seventies called. They want their vestments back.
