CONGREGATIO DE CULTU DIVINO ET DISCIPLINA SACRAMENTORUM

« Rectori » Basilicae, seu el qui ipsi Basilicae praeest, uti licet in munere exercendo — super vestem talarem vel vestem familiae religiosae et superpelliceum — mozeta nigri colorís, cum oris, ocellis et globulis co­loris rubra.

Congregation for Divine Worship and the Disicipline of the Scaraments
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.

Hearst Castle - Coat of Arms of a cleric?

On 1st of May I visited Hearst Castle, San Simeon, California, USA.

 Above the main entrance I saw a coat of arms of a prelate.
I asked the guide why there is shown a coat of arm of a cleric?
But he could not answer my question.
Maybe one of me esteemed reads can explain it?

You can recognize an Ecclesiastical Hat (Galero) with 6 tassels on each side.
(> very nice drawings of the different Ecclesiastical Hats on Wikipedia)


Bonete and Biretta in Special Color Combinations

Ordered by the Chief Apostle of a Pentecostal church in the USA

Ordered by an Episcopalian priest in the USA as "teaching aid"

Made on special request for a priest in Georgia, USA
