Elle Pell, the Christmas Belle

Dear George Cardinal missed out on the President's job at the ACBC. However, that hasn't stopped him setting the pace in sartorial leadership among his brother bishops. Just look at this lace number he is wearing to bless the peasants in Sydney during Advent this year.

For those who think this is just a nice petticoat, let me assure you it is a standard item in any respectable bishop's BIR. It's correctly called a Rochet, a great word for scrabble. Will we see it at the 2007 Mardi Gras doing a dry run for WYD in 2008?

Last time George Cardinal set the pace for high camp dress code was during the World Youth Day celebrations in Cologne. Check out the reviews. You can also follow some blog comments. from the adoring faithful. George Cardinal has also helped to resurrect a few forgotten Catholic (and sometimes Anglican) words like biretta.

Not sure if there are vacancies for train carriers for the 2008 World Youth Day parades , but get your expressions of interest in now and beat the rush!!
