Norms for the Granting of the Title of Minor Basilica
November 9, 1989

The rector of the basilica or the person in charge of it may wear in the exercise of his office — over the cassock or the religious habit and the surplice — a black mozetta [cape] with red piping, buttons, and button holes.

I saw a rector of the basilica wearing in accordance with mozzetta a biretta and zuchetto.

    The use of a piped biretta does not seam to be licit. Neither biretta nor soutane are mentioned in the decree. Both should therefore be of the colour fitting to the rank/order of the wearer not of the building he wears them in.
    Perhaps the rector You saw was at the same time a monsignor?
