On Metro Seminarians, Cassocks and Conducts, and Modernizing the Church
The Former Sapphist

Thanks for your rebuke of this photographer. My guess is the boys were clowning around for the camera. I can tell you it takes a long time to mature into the garb of Roman Catholic priesthood, to learn the discipline of language, clothing and manner that the faithful demand and deserve. The priest must know there is an altar placed between him and everyone else at all times and in every place; and when he tries to get around the altar, to become again a private person, people get hurt.
