The Western Catholic World

NLM had, yesterday, a pretty feature showing blue vestments - that delightful Spanish custom - in use "in the Western Catholic World". I was afflicted by an ineluctable fantasy that one of the figures portrayed had a curious but striking resemblance to the luxuriantly, exquisitely, Hispanic figure of the Principal of an Anglican seminary not a million miles from here. Nice to know that NLM, unlike some people I could mention, regard us people as authentically Catholic.

Incidentally, the chasuble showed just before the picky of Fr Robin looked, to my untutored eye, distinctly like an example of opus Anglicanum. Does anyone know where it comes from?
