Fashion Mistake or Original Style? What to wear when meeting the Pope
July 27, 2012. (Romereports.com) When it comes to meeting the Pope one could say, fashion wise, men have it a lot easier than women. Hitting the fashion mark, can often times be challenging. What one considers fashionable, may end up raising someone else's eyebrows.
... Other situations, may seem a bit odd or just interesting. For example, Queen Elizabeth held tight to her purse while meeting Benedict XVI, never leaving it out of her sight. But if one looks years back at her meeting with John Paul II, it's a similar scene, with her walking around with her purse.
My young priest, Father Tom Dowd who's now already a bishop aka Bishop Dowd, met the pope this month with his delegation and will meet him again but this time alone, in September (I'm SO proud of him!!). I can safely say his knees and ankles were covered up and no doubt he wore something on his head ;D Modesty has always been the best policy IMO.
