Bishop Edward Slattery wearing the cappa magna.
Oh, and did I mention that His Excellency had returned from Rome (after the volcano delay) on Wednesday, initially declined the invitation, then at the urging of Abp. Wuerl, accepted. He was on the plane Friday morning to DC, celebrated the Pontifical Solemn High Mass on Saturday. He had no voice by Sunday. I shall be praying a spiritual bouquet for His Excellency.

Note to CNS, thank you for the article and photos. But,please, Bp. Slattery did not have his back to the congregation, we all faced God in the same direction. BIG difference. Oh, and I was once of the "many women who wore veils."
