Copes in Processions of the Blessed Sacrament

In the past, as I was organizing the Blessed Sacrament procession for the Vicariate of San Pedro Bautista, I entered into an argument with a sister of the Pious Disciples of the Divine Master who opposed the idea of having all the priests wear a cope. "It is never done," she said to me. I came across these pictures of the Corpus Christi procession in Toledo, Spain. These pictures were in the New Liturgical Movement blog and the image source is El Digital Imagines. These pictures prove that the sister was wrong.


  1. Send these pictures to that nun right away, Father.

  2. Father Jojo, I believe these PDDM sisters study under...Fr. Anscar. So not surprisingly, the designs of their chapels. I was surprised when I visited their store to see them selling black birettas and even a made to order fiddleback chasuble! But they need to be reoriented.

  3. That's an improvement. I few months back, they were not even aware of fiddlebacks.
