The White Mozzetta is back…Alleluia!

The Holy Father this week is seen in the traditional white mozzetta worn by the Holy Father only during the Octave of Easter.
The last Pope to wear this traditional white mozzetta was Pope Paul VI.
The return of the garment in both forms, the winter red and the Easter white is a hallmark of Benedict XVI.

The photograph of Benedict XVI is  by papal photographer Felici
