Sometimes you get lucky

Interesting day today. Met and had lunch with Robert Moynihan, who introduced me to this lady


Sr. Margarita is an American, 88 years old, and a member of the Religious Teachers Filippini, an order of active sisters founded to teach religion, which is actually, surprisingly, a rather rare charism.

And she's working to get Pius XII canonised.

You see these sisters around Rome quite a bit, with their little bonnets. But mostly they wear the modified bonnet. Not Sr. Margarita. I remember seeing her for the first time on the bus, wearing the full gear.


And this lovely bonnet with the pleated edges.

What a coincidence, I was just reading the blog of this nice Dutch lady who wrote a thesis on frilled caps.

She made a reconstruction of a relic of St. Birgitte.

Is she the one who had the series on EWTN?

A bonnet revival would likely heal all schisms, restore the liturgy and save Western Civ. Where can I get one?
