Tiara Has Returned


  1. God always works slowly but surely!

    Maybe a sign of more things to expect!!

    Ad multos annos Santita!

  2. As I have said for years (and as the late Michael McCarthy ALWAYS said) it was simply a metter of time before we began to see the tiara used on the papal coat of arms again. This is because, I believe, the Holy Father never really intended to remove it for symbolic reasons. Rather, he was talked into it along with the "new" (now gone) pallium.

    It does not matter whether or not he actually wears the tiara. That is a discussion for another place. But it remains an heraldic emblem.

    I'm so pleased to see Vatican heraldic practices returning to normal!
