Inside the Salle di Lacrime

Rome Reports has certainly been granted access to those places we often hear of in Papal elections, but never see.  Here they have a video of the Salle di Lacrime - the "Room of Tears" within which the newly elected Pope is clothed in the papal garments for the first time.  As you can see everything is laid out for the new Pope - cassocks, shoes, shirts, rochets, zucchettos, stole and mozetta (the winter one).

  1. Shirts? That must be new, cos Ratzinger was wearing a black polo neck last time, or one of those body armour tops that footballers wear.
